balancing

We gather as community in community—
believing and questioning,
grieving and joyful,
hopeful and doubtful,
full of energy and all worn out,
thinking about this,
thinking about that,
wondering and wanting,
celebrating and waiting,
working and resting,
giving and receiving,
committed to honesty,
to vulnerability,
to a complementary truth,
to filling the gaps—
meeting the needs,
to balancing each other.
And as we find our balance, God,
may we reach out to the world’s imbalance
in love with hope and faith,
and a vision that inspires and sustains—
itself inspired and sustained
by the living presence of Jesus,
in whose name we pray,
amen.
