nVRJMAGHoly God,
Be with us as we carry others
And ourselves
Through the changing seasons.
As we rejoice with those who rejoice
And mourn with those who mourn,
May we not get too disoriented in the process.
As we move from scholarly tasks to social engagements
To administrative details to difficult conversations,
May we see the big picture
Linking it all to your work.
Through smooth sailing and rough waters;
Through bursts of energy and the weight of fatigue;
Through feelings of accomplishment and the frustration of stagnation—
Be with us as we carry others
And ourselves.
Better yet, carry us all
By your grace.
