May we sit with each other
Receiving unexpected holy promises
Snickering in surprise and anxiety
Accepting bequests of unusual guests

May we run to meet each other
Seeking favor from strangers
Begging travelers to stop awhile
Offering rest with a sumptuous feast

May we laugh with each other
Wondering at divine timing
Avoiding personal agendas
Welcoming sacred creativity


Thresholds are your specialty O God
Moving from one space to another
Sometimes a new adventure, others coming home
Your presence holds our mixed emotions

Ends and beginning are your specialty O Christ
Dying to soon stride out of your own tomb
Claiming new life can arise from grief and loss
Your example challenges our aversion

Journeys are your specialty O Spirit
Rhythms of traveling and resting
Learning, growing, changing, letting go
Your guidance transforms our resistance
