Lover of Life let us make way and make room for each other, that no one need be without a safe and nourishing place tonight. Help us lean more fully into fulfilling faithful promises of welcome and glad sharing, of creating by hearth and with heart hope made real with our hands and help tonight. Lover of Life we, like the birds, need our nests, like the foxes, our dens, a place to rest our heads and know we are known and appreciated and loved, a place where we are nourished and learn to be yet more loving. Help us make that place for one another in this world, a home for every one, for we each have a place in this world, belonging here right now with and to one another and this planet. Help us make way and make room for hope to be born and reborn every night and every day in loving words and loving works and loving dreams, now and always. Amen.
