And there you are, and here I am, and we’re exactly who we are, and neither of us are exactly who we want to be. And yet we endure, flourish and thrive. We suffer, worry, reflect and heal. We rise to the challenge, we betray the trust. We are human and this is our condition. The best that we can do is to own it – all of it – and grow in respect for ourselves and for each other. May it come to pass. For our human condition we are grateful. Blessed Be, and Amen.
Love this one!
If only I would have thought of it ahead of time I should’ve had you do the chalice lighting today with this prayer…such an aligned prayer for the service.
