From the Minister
May those of you who need relief from the pressures of pandemic life
find it this summer;
May those who need help in this search find that help.
(Hint: it could come from anywhere)
May those of you grieving all you have lost or indefinitely postponed this year
know nothing is wrong with you;
May those alienated from your grief find help in locating and embracing it;
(Hint: it could come at any time)
May those of you who have cause for gratitude take joy in that blessing;
May those who need help locating gratitude find that help;
(Hint: it could come from anywhere at any time)
May those of you fearing the future find the courage to bring your gifts to making it brighter for all;
May those who need help believing their gifts are needed find it among us
and in the emerging Spirit of Love-Giving Life of which we are a part.
(Hint: Have faith – you are needed!)
