Creative Love guide us through every season of our lives, in our dreaming and in our wondering, in our stories and in our songs, in how we meet each trouble and trial, in how we hold one another through each tragedy, in how we bear one another up through the diminishments of disease, in how we tend this aching earth and these broken communities. Creative Love guide us through every season of our lives, that we may find and make the ways needed for goodness' sake, the ways of generosity and forgiveness, of reconciliation and reconstruction, of trying and failing and learning to keep trying to succeed. Creative Love guide us through every season of our lives, the seasons of growth and the seasons of glory, the seasons of letting go and resting in what is, the seasons of hope and the seasons of acceptance, the seasons of wonderment and the seasons of grateful joy. Whatever season we find ourselves in, whatever season is next, may we find our way through each with great kindness and bold generosity, with whole-hearted engagement and all the love we can muster and make, now and always. Amen.
