May others find in us the shelter and the love that we have been so freely given by those who have mothered us
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light
O God. Find me. I beg you to help me gather up my scattered self.
The blessing of those who speak out against unjust practices and violence The blessing of our communities coming together in time of distress The blessing of the human heart that…
May love rise in us.
Shine your sunlight on the seeds of life
Kind – one act of kindness each day of Lent.
Identity – once a day for forty days say, “God loves me as I am.”
Today we greet the dawn of Christmas 2020
Somewhere God, in my heart’s quiet place, I do give thanks for the birth of Jesus, your Son
Increase my love for you so that when this is over, I can spread your love to everyone I meet
Provident God, your presence among us so real.
Thank you for loving me when I am sad, distressed, worried, crabby and impatient just as you love me when I am thankful.
