Inspire. Enlighten. Guide

We gather as people on a journey.

We believe & we have doubts,
   we do good & we sin.
We are imperfect humans,
   and still beloved by God.

Love and grace. Hope and faith.
These are the essence of
the one we call God.

We seek forgiveness & grace from
the One and from those we’ve harmed.

Assured of that grace,
we are ready to grow again.

We yearn for a new way,
a new perspective,
and a clear path.

Though we are full of trust
and full of doubt, we are here.
Speak to us, God! Continue creating us!

Inspire our hearts.
Enlighten our minds.
Guide our actions. Amen.

He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
