Holy mystery that guides our days and touches the complexity of our lives…

Holy mystery that guides our days and touches the complexity of our lives, we stand before you worn and weary, filled with gladness and delight. We share the experiences of living that we might find compassionate care in the company of those we know and those we have yet to meet. We share the experiences of our days that we might understand the complexity of human nature, the potential for good as well as the potential for evil. We live in times where it is easy to be soured by all that tears at our joy for living and our desire to love deeply and care boldly. May we find the wisdom and audacity to look deeper to see the beauty of benevolent and merciful society responding with kindheartedness, acceptance and understanding. In celebration for all that is our life, let us say together, Amen.
