Praise and lift up our beloved community! Daily we gather in many incarnations of our family of humanity. We recognize our sisters and brothers in every encounter: the grocery store clerk; the elderly man in the hospital cafeteria; the elementary school nurse; the homeless couple; the soldier at the bus station, home on leave. All vital, all worthy, all sharing in the great human experience of life. The Golden Rule reminds us as we would have done unto us, so too should we do unto them. May we be mindful and vigilant of this precious prescription, that we may minister to the ills of our times. For all of our brothers and sisters, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
