This world goes too fast
to say all the stories
that fill our lives.
We struggle for the words
and the friends that would listen,
that would witness
this much beauty, this
relentless
loss,
this courage
to continue on
claiming confidence and joy.

Here in this place
let us mark time
as if it is our friend
not running away
but
offering itself
with a new abundance
like a gift
ready to offer healing
and mercy
in the breathing together
and the silence
in the paying attention,
in the music
and in the mystery.

Not everything can be fixed in an hour
not everything can be forgiven
or saved
but here we remember
that this is how we
begin
moment by moment
making our lives
one choice
one spark
of hope
one willing yes
at a time.

Come, let us worship, together.
