Weaver of Wisdom, knitted cloth is made from loops connecting one to another to make a warm and beautiful whole; may we learn to live like that, refusing to unravel when we are needed to make change for goodness' sake. When the world is painful or cold, we have the power to change that, when we're working together. Weaver of Wisdom, woven cloth is made from warp and weft united to make all kinds of textures depending on what is needed - open and breezy, tight and wind-resistant, heavy-weight and warm, medium-weight and resilient; may we learn to live like that, attentive to what goodness needs from us working together. When injustice rules and is so common as to be the way things are and always have been and always will be, we have the power to change that, working together. Weaver of Wisdom, felted cloth is made from fibers locking tight to one another, stronger and denser than when apart, rain resistant and weathering against the cold; may we learn to live together like that, grasping hold of each others' strengths and gifts and helping each other create together a more gracious and loving world, a world resistant to terror and welcoming to strangers, a world made hopeful and resilient by how we create goodness together, night by night, and day by day. Whatever the weather, whatever challenges we face personally and in our world, may we hold together and create the needed change to grow goodness everywhere. Amen.
