Closing Words: “As we depart one from another”
As we depart one from another, let our hearts be secure through every human season.
Let our hearts be secure in seasons of anguish as in seasons of joy, in seasons of failure as in seasons of success, in seasons of uncertainty as in seasons of security.
Let our hearts be secure in this dual reality: we are worthy recipients of love and support we can never earn, and we are worthy providers of love and support others cannot earn.
Let our hearts be secure, for hearts know and understand and will respond if invited in.
