Joy that holds the heart and dances with us to make room for love and generosity and kindness, dance with us now as we seek to comfort one another, wearied from meeting hatred and indifference, indignity and oppression in this and so many - even every - day. Comfort us and help us comfort each other, finding the goodness that is and the goodness we can create together, ending hatred for a little while and strengthening us to do the hard work every day to thrive and to seek an end to hatred and oppression every where for every one. Joy that holds the heart and dances with us to make room for love and generosity and kindness, dance with us now and as we meet what wearies and wears away at hopefulness and hospitality, at courage and at compassion, and instead help us hold onto and remember ourselves as the gifts we are, with the gifts we have, called to this daily labor of love and blessing the world. Dance with us, hold us, and help us bear new hope and new joy into life each night and each day. Amen.
