Everyday Blessings, February 23, 2012


Sacred Writing:
Henri Nouwen: “A Christian community is…a healing community not because wounds are cured and pains alleviated, but because wounds and pains become openings or occasions for a new vision.” (The Wounded Healer, p. 96)

What is one blessing you have experienced this week?Sunflower with bee


Let us go out into the world, embracing the blessings that are present there,
Engaging the strangers we meet along the way,
Easing the suffering we encounter, healing the pain we see, and offering words of hope and love to all. May it be so. Amen.
