Let It Begin A Prayer for the New Year. By Rev. Karen Munson
As one year’s last minutes tick toward the first seconds of the next, Let courage begin to infiltrate the marrow of our resolve to be better human beings, one to another, and strengthen our spines. Let us begin to be intolerant of anything that dismisses another as worthless, of words that wound of choices that scar. Let gratitude begin to replenish the rocky landscape of broken dreams and promises, mine and yours, and make fertile common ground. Let attention begin to help me hear the persistent God-beat of compassion, pulsing new life into what is and birthing what may be. Let my guard down to you, Christ, who leads me into the circle of your love where I am renewed and remade. Let it begin, This moment, This us.
