A prayer of exploration: may our desire to discover be insatiable. May our courage be steadfast. May our bearings not fail. May we inventory our resources. May we boldly move forward. May we remember where we’ve been. May we be present to where we are. May we greet the natives with respect and regard. May we honor their traditions. May we share our journey. May we be content if we find ourselves back where we began, in a place wholly new. For discovery we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
