Easter Grace, 2018
We incline our ear toward you
and hear the cries of your people;
the ache of your earth, our home;
the complex symphony of seasons.
We incline our deepest joy toward you
and we celebrate relationship;
the bubble of laughter that breaks surface;
the counter-weight that steadies.
We incline our love toward you
and we give thanks for your fidelity,
your always and everywhere,
and “until the end.”
We incline our desire toward you:
to be an Easter people;
To proclaim Good News;
And one day, to rise, to rise, to rise.
And we ask your blessing
upon this meal,
upon the company we keep,
so that by both we are nourished
and this may all be so.
