We’ve been given time...
to render justice,
to heal divisions,
to touch in,
to tap resources,
to request pardon.

We’ve been given gifts...
so we discover,
so we exchange,
so we support,
so we nurture,
so we dream.

We’ve been given companions....
for integrity,
for encouragement,
for perspective
for humility,
for accountability.

We’ve been given life in the Spirit...
so we surrender and sow openness,
so we laugh and sow joy,
so we hope and sow trust,
so we weep and sow contrition,
so we love and sow human kindness.

We welcome God’s
timeless love,
Commissioning us
to be the Body of Christ,
“blessed and broken.”
