You are good
Your intentions, relentless  
Wave after wave,  
Indefatigable  
Lord, break over us
We, of small-minded polity, and punitive theology.
Raise up humanity
In the roar of your love.

Amen.

A New Year's Prayer

The sun sets,
but on the other side of the horizon, it is already rising.
You are always rising.

The year ends,
but on the other side of the calendar, it is already beginning.
You are always beginning.

Your Son is dying
but on the other side of the grave, He is already being resurrected.
You are always resurrecting.

We are being broken
but on the other side of the wound, we are already being healed.
You are always healing.

We inhale all that has been…
We exhale all that we thought it would be…
In Christ, all things are made new.
Amen.

The Son is Out
