All saints

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         
    
For all the souls whom I love
who are far away,
who sanctify my world,
I allow my love to reach
across the world to them,
and I give thanks.

     

And all souls whom I have loved
who have moved beyond this world
bear my love with them to wider spaces
and carry me on their journey,
binding me to the infinite.

For their journey with me
and their journey beyond,
I give thanks.

Holy One,
I give thanks for all the saints,
whose love breathes in my lungs,
whose courage awakens my nerves,
whose secret trials ring in my bones,
whose desire for you throbs in my heart.

All of those, unknown,
made holy by your tender kiss—
I fall into their love for you,
I let their mind be mine,
they live in me,
and we are glad.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
