Beloved, each wondrous moment - each moment when wowed by what is - nurtures joy and hope. How important those moments are to our souls, for they freshen the weary spirit and restore in us a sense of what is good and possible. Mercy help us do the same for each other; so many of us have very thin hope in what is good and possible, and are struggling right here and right now to stay afloat and to love and to offer the gifts we have to this world. Justice help us fresh each other's weary spirit and restore in one another a sense of what is good and possible, so we may live with dignity and with generosity and wisely with each other. Beloved, return us to the center of life, to wonderment and to the gratitude and sense of possibility that springs from such awe. And then, renewed, may we turn with one another to what is good and needful and together create the blessings this world requires. Amen.
