We thank You for important celebrations of being and identity.
We thank You for opportunities to reflect on being and integrity—
opportunities to remember not just who we’ve been,
but also who and how we want to be,
opportunities to assess who we have shown ourselves to be—
opportunities to repent, re-envision and recommit—
opportunities to reclaim the excitement
of incarnating a dream still worth dreaming—
of making manifest ideas and ideals that remain important.
This we pray today in the name of Your dreams still made flesh—
informing our being amidst all its celebrations,
