This week, Rev. Lee opens with a story about a man being filmed by a helpful bystander during a traffic stop, and how looking out for one another like this is a new way to show love. Love requires unexpected things from us right now, just like in this week’s Spiritflix movie, The Farewell. She also ponders the nature of truth in a stressful environment.
om for the answers, maybe a bigger room than we’re used to, a bigger space than usual in these difficult times for some new answers, for some healthy humility, for asking if we are always sure that our first instinct is correct, we can open that space for each other today. That just might lead us towards more trust, towards more honesty, and maybe even towards some healing.
Amen and may live a blessing.
I invite you to take a moment wherever you are to relax and be in this moment, maybe close your eyes, maybe bow your head. If it feels good, let your shoulders fall and join me in the spirit of prayer. God of our hearts. Spirit of the unknown of all that we cannot see of all that is a mystery to us and we’ll stay a mystery. Help us to remember that when everything is confusing and mysterious and changing and shifting, that there are still some guideposts to follow and there are still some threads we can find and hold on to. The call of our common humanity, the knowledge that we are in this together and the voice of that love then is always here, whether it’s near or far from us, it’s always reaching out to us. Asking us to take a risk to reach back and follow it. May we all be greeted with grace and gentleness? And gifted with courage as we follow the voice of your heart, God calling to our own hearts. For the prayers I’ve spoken out loud and for the prayers that every single person with us this morning is holding on their hearts, we say amen.
