Wisdom teach us what we really need to live faithfully each and every day. Teach us to love one another, to know each other's needs, to unlock the locks and break down the strangely strong yet brittle barriers that we use to divide ourselves from each other. Open our hearts to the real thankfulness that wells up when we are able to truly care for one another, to truly care for this earth, to tend beauty and share stories and sing each other's songs as we build communities of grace and communities of welcome. Wisdom teach us what we really need to live faithfully each and every day. Teach us the truth of loving one another, the differences real love accepts and cherishes, the hopes and dreams we need to comprehend and help to flower and fruit, the vulnerability of being - our own and every one's - that requires risk and effort every day. Wisdom you are greater than the sum of facts, than the history of ages, than the knowledge of science, than the traditions of how to arrange words and parcel them out. For humanity needs these bodies of knowledge and to grow them, but we need even more what is so easy to neglect: that true love is difficult and fumbles and is imperfect and is brave and keeps trying and keeping giving thanks and keeps cherishing. We need even more what is so easy to shrug off with a few words: that truly loving the world means loving strangers and discovering neighbors and friends, loving the irate and loving the irresponsible, loving those easy to love and loving those easy to hate, loving enough to forgive and to be forgiven, loving enough to risk and risk again to fulfill faithful promises and hopes and dreams that draw us more fully to our best selves. Wisdom teach us what we really need to live faithfully each and every day and help us find the strength to love more than enough. Amen.
