happy birthday sarah.

I am so thankful for you, my sweet farmer girl,

Teacher of tea and prayer and poetry,

A million memories,

I love learning through how you work for justice.
I love how you choose life.
You have taught me so much about being.
You are so beautiful.

Thank you for wholeheartedly rejoicing in my joys, and for choosing to carry so many of my burdens.
Thank you for letting me in to your joys and your burdens.
I love learning through your love and joy and life.
I love living life with you.

May this year be filled with even more learning and love than the one before.

I loooooove you!!!!!!

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
