On this day, dear God,
As we seek rest
As we seek peace
As we seek love
As we seek justice
As we seek joy
As we seek wholeness
As we seek liberation …
May we be rest for the weary and those constantly profiled
May we be peace in moments of anxiety and fear
May we share love freely and unabashedly
May we demand and work for justice for all creation
May we not take ourselves too seriously, and laugh, and take time to tickle others
May we be sources of true healing and deep compassion
May we be free to be who you desired us to be and allow others the same freedom
On this day, dear God.
Amen and amén

Blessing of rest; blessing of finding out who we are and be interested, investing, engaged, engraced with who others are.
