Lover of Liberty and Lover of Peace help us find our ways out of oppression and cruelty and disregard. Help us find our ways to remembering and knowing all that we share, all that calls us to goodness, all that offers love and generosity and justice and wisdom, together, needing every one and everyone's gifts for goodness' sake. Freedom has both responsibilities and challenges. Lover of Liberty grant us the courage to be steadfast in tending those responsibilities, in putting our backs into the heavy work a free community and nation and world demands: generosity with one another, great care for each other and this earth, showing up day after day in dissent and in agreement, celebrating the differing gifts each of us and each of our communities have, and showing up to listen and not just to speak -- especially when we believe there is nothing else to be said. Lover of Peace sustain and strengthen the courage we already have been gifted to help each other be citizens of love and citizens of liberty and citizens of blessing each and every day. May we be glad and grateful for our responsibilities and our cares, and work well together in tending them, in making peace and justice and kindness real every hour of our lives. Amen.
