blessed be the tie that binds

Our God,

From the disconnectedness of distance preserve us—
whether that distance be of miles or of emotions—
whether that disconnectedness be circumstantial or relational.
Bind us to the concerns and celebrations of others
even as they are bound to our own,
that in being thus bound
we might know ourselves free—
free to be as You created us to be—
in community.

This we pray in community with You,

Amen.
