We sing a song of thanksgiving today,
dear God, one and many.
We pause in the midst of all that is unholy, unthinkable, and undeniable,
to look within,
and offer our gratitudes
for a day that has dawned anew,
and for the breath that gives us life.
that we have voice and head and heart
so that we can love one another,
and love all of your people.
We celebrate the abundance in our lives,
and that we can share it with the world.
In jubilance and grace,
we offer ourselves and all that we are and have
to be your justice and peace
in the midst of all that is unholy, unthinkable, and undeniable.
In the name of Jesus we pray,
