Great Spirit, in whose image we recognize each other, we are bound up in our everyday lives . We work hard to do our jobs with integrity. We are mindful in tending our relationships with intention. We strive to grow in love and learn in action. And we are fallible, and we are clumsy, and we are insensitive. Forgiveness is a state of Grace. We should hope for forgiveness, but not ask for it. For it must be given with true spirit and high intention. And it likewise should be received with humility and gratitude. For the many blessings in our lives, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
