God of the just heart
In the challenging words of the Sermon on the Mount
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice
They shall be satisfied’
You remind us that satisfaction does not lie
Where we might expect it
In the security of wealth and privilege
But in the joy of doing what is right
And in working to assert the value and dignity of other people
Because this is the calling of your community
This builds relationships and just societies
This brings deep satisfaction
As all are made welcome.
So keep us hungering and thirsting
For the values that make us all whole
And then we know the healing fountains will start.
Holy Dreams to Feed the Soul
Eternal echoes are calling me somewhere on the wind
They’re hard to hear – sometimes I fear I won’t hear them again
But they return and seem to say you’ve somewhere you belong
Eternal echoes are leading me with the silent voice of love
In this moment, we bring ourselves, and our day,
We gather our random thoughts, our scattered lives.
We bring the entirety of ourselves to this place of calm, this place of safety.
We seek sanctuary so that we can risk everything.
