By Doug, CiM
Out of the stillness, God, you have brought us together,
And together, God, we want to go over yonder
To that place where stillness becomes the sea of your love,
The sea that holds all in one loving heart—your heart God.
So now, God, we ask that you continue to teach us
How to become poor-in-spirit-mourners who gently
Search within ourselves and in all that life brings,
While we allow our growing stillness to carry forward
Your justice and mercy to all. Only then, might our hearts
Become clean enough to be the peacemakers that bring
Your passion into the life of everything we encounter
in our yondering—regardless of the cost. Amen.
