May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that we may live from deep within our hearts. Amen.
May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace. Amen.
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection,starvation and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy. Amen.
May God bless us with just enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done. Amen.
And the Blessing of God, who Creates, Redeems and Sanctifies, be upon us and all whom we love and pray for this day, and forever more. Amen.
