Closing Words for Hard Times

With a snow-covered mountain the background, a human harm reaches out and, on their bare fingers, lightly holds a curious bird.

No matter how weak or how frightened we may feel, we each have gifts that can make a difference in the world. In this coming week, may you do at least one thing to support the broken; to welcome the stranger; to celebrate what is worthy; to do the work of justice and love.
Be strong.
Be connected.
Each day, act — so you may be a little more whole.

This benediction was inspired by "Choose to Bless the World" by Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker
