Without a prayer on the tongue, or a message behind the voice, are we therefore shallow in some way? Certainly not! To live today honestly and authentically is prayer enough. To engage kindly and thoughtfully is a mighty message. Actions speak volumes, where words can be hollow. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “in prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” The challenge in wholehearted living is that it requires us to be vulnerable. And yet, our vulnerability is ultimately our strength. For this vulnerability we are thankful. Blessed Be, and Amen.
