encouraged, sustained, and reminded

Our God,
we gather
to encourage and sustain each other
in relying on You,
and to thus avoid the hollowness
of too much of our reality.

We gather to be reminded
that while we cannot point to You—
contain You—
nail You down to any one time or place,
we can point to where You’ve been—
to how You’ve been with us
in and as love.

And so it is encouraged, sustained, and reminded,
that we gather to celebrate
the depth of life to which You call us—
the depths of love that await us
in the name of the one in whose name we pray,
amen.
