sun and moonAmazing God,

On this day in the middle of the week

In this moment in the middle of the morning

As we journey in the middle of the Lenten season

We stop and catch a view of both the sun’s brilliance and the moon’s light in the deep blue sky

And we are convicted to live this day with the intention to share space, share time, share gifts, share wisdom, share culture, share herstory, share laughter, share trauma, share healing, share tears, share power, share grace, share presence.

Abundant God,

If there is enough room for the sun and the moon to exist in harmony and right relationship – there is enough room for each of us. All of us.

Good lookin’ out, God.

Thank you and amen.
