Of one heart and soul, make us:
one heart sharing hope,
one soul witnessing life,
one heart bearing grief,
one soul crying “Justice!”

Of one heart and soul, make us:
one heart bleeding in the street,
one soul drowning in the river,
one heart longing for freedom,
one soul searing from separation.

Of one heart and soul, make us:
one heart healing from death’s wounds,
one soul believing the impossible mystery,
one heart singing in courageous fellowship,
one soul committing to abundant life.

Of one heart and soul, make us, we pray — our LORD and our God!


Rachel G. Hackenberg is a United Church of Christ minister, blogger, and soccer mom. Her upcoming book, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith) with co-author Martha Spong, reflects on childhood memories of organizing the church nursery, harboring secret resentment of labyrinths, and other stories of (failed) faith.
