Everyday Blessings, August 16, 2012


Sacred Writing:

“We will go before God to be judged, and God will ask us, ‘Where are your wounds?’ And we will say, ‘We have no wounds.’ And God will ask, ‘Was there nothing worth fighting for?’”
~Allan Boesak, South African freedom fighter

What is one blessing you have experienced this week?


May we depart from this holy space,
Letting go of all that weighs us down,
Giving up those ways that harden our hearts and cut us off from God and others,
And instead may we embrace the wisdom of Jesus Christ, by opening, softening, and purifying our hearts, so that love may flow freely through us and from us. Amen.
