May God empower us, free us and humble us
To be His hands and feet
To be a blessing
Wherever we go
Wherever we are
Whether the world is watching or not.
Indeed may God deliver us from the need to be seen and applauded
So we might grow in the realization of a new freedom
To enter the hidden pastures and wide open spaces of His pleasure
May we enjoy the blessing of each other’s company as never before.
May each of us also enjoy our own company
In rich moments of reflection and silence and blissful aloneness
Soaking in the Companionship of our Savior.
May we take increasingly bold steps together
Challenging the frontiers of our comfort zones
Discovering divine courage and wisdom in our leaps of faith
As we protect the vulnerable and give voice to the voiceless.
And together may we taste more and more of His unity
So that, by His unfathomable grace,
We might be living evidence of His love.
