This morning, a short blessing prayer from John Philip Newell as I prepare to go and serve breakfast for a bright, kindly group of women here at the Spiritual Center for the last of our season’s workshops. It is a privilege to be in the presence each weekend of such seekers of a deep spiritual experience and I am grateful as I pray:
May the love of life fill our hearts. May the love of earth bring joy to heaven. May the love of self deepen our souls. May the love of neighbors heal our world. As nations, as peoples, as families this day, may the love of life heal our world.
