In every person we meet, especially those who cause us discomfort, we find an opportunity for us to grow, to learn, to go further along the path of transformation that is our purpose in life. Every single one is our teacher. May the next week bring you many such moments of meeting that help you...

Benediction | By Amy Zucker Morgenstern | January 2, 2020 | From WorshipWeb

Blessed is the dark, in which our dreams stir and are revealed. Blessed is the dark of earth, where seeds come to life.

On this sacred day of choosing—with gratitude to those who entrusted us with this honored task, who struggled and suffered that we might have the power to choose—may we choose well. May we choose love over fear, wisdom over cleverness, courage over cowardice, life over death, kindness over...

Prayer | By Amy Zucker Morgenstern | November 7, 2016 | From WorshipWeb

When we take fire from our chalice, it does not become less. It becomes more. And so we extinguish our chalice, but we take its light and warmth with us, multiplying their power by all of our lives, and sharing it with the world.
