One body

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         You are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

                  —1 Corinthians 12.27

When you despair
that your life is small or insignificant,
when you grieve
that your life is troubled or a mess,
when you doubt
your life’s benefit to the universe,
remember that no matter your faults,
regardless of your disappointments,
you are more than this one individual flesh:
you are a part of this vast, wondrous humanity,
this glorious Creation,
that you are part of God’s healing of the world,
and know that your life, your whole life,
is wonderful, beautiful, and worthy,
holy, and belonging to God…
and give thanks.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
