Come into this space of respite. The stress, evils, and hardships of the world have manifested in our bodies and souls.
Beleaguered by the world, we are weary.
Come into sanctuary with the great mystery. Be present with dust and breath, with earth and divinity.
We come to be restored by the breath of the creating One. We come to be one in the presence of one another.
Acknowledge the stress, evils, hurts, and hardships of the world that you’ve absorbed and carry with you.
We seek healing and wholeness and connection.
Take into yourselves the world, integrate it with the Imago Dei (the image of God) within you and together create something holy.
We seek to remake, to restore, and transform ourselves before one another and the mysterious One.
Come into this space of respite. Open your whole beings to the balm of healing.
We open our hearts to the new creation made of dust and breath, of the world and of divinity, of our dark places and the light that resides within.
Be ready. Wholeness awaits. Amen.
