Love that challenges and changes, teach us today to hold one another with compassion, to tend the needs of this earth and our communities, to be a blessing and to be glad for the blessings we know. Love that comforts and confronts, guide us in making good choices about what we say and when we say it, of helping each other live with honesty and integrity, of making needful change that eases suffering and increases goodness. Love that challenges and changes, teach us today about the good and the good enough, about needing one another and being grateful for others' gifts, about life with all its imperfections and us with all of ours and the generosity of spirit and practices of forgiveness that true love requires. Love that comforts and confronts, guide us in thankfulness and gladness for the good enough, imperfect as it is, for the miracles of life, for the opportunities to give and share, and for kindnesses beyond measure. Amen.
