Groundedness & Restlessness

Oh Greatness Abundant!

We gather together,
one part of the whole people of earth.
We claim you as ours,
yet it is we who are yours.

We are your beloved among beloved.
Whatever our nationality, our skin tone,
or orientation, or abilities,
we are created in your image.

As we worship and coffee,
connect us.
Do not just connect us to one another,
but to our neighbors.

Create groundedness but,
also a deep restlessness,
until your dream of the wholeness of creation is a reality.

Spur us to be doers of justice, expanders of love,
and people of humility.

In your ways,
In your hopes,
In your yearning,
We pray!

Amen.
