Your arms outstretched to the world,
Inviting every rock, tree, creature, being into your embrace.
Your embrace is safe,
Your embrace is challenge,
Your embrace is food and drink for a very hungry and thirsty time.
Give us courage to rest in your arms,
to find meaning as your heart beats against our own hearts.
Bless us and charge us and then release us…
our own arms outstretched to the world,
Inviting every rock, tree, creature, being into our embrace.
Rev. Karla Miller is the pastor of First Congregational Church UCC of Hendersonville, NC tucked into the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
