A Blessing

2020 Gate - A Blessing

The world now is too dangerous
And too beautiful
For anything but love.

Love is a blessing.
So may your eyes be

so
blessed that you see God in everyone
Your lips  –

so
you speak nothing but the truth
Your ears

so
that you hear the cry of the poor

May your hands be so blessed that everything you touch becomes a sacrament
Your feet – so that you run to those who need you
And may your heart be so opened
So set on fire
That your love
Your love
Changes everything.
Amen. 

By The Very Rev. Brian Baker
