Hebrews 13

Now may the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,

21 make you complete in everything good so that you may do his will, working among us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Be in love with life,
wrestle with the chaos and the pain,
with your self and with others,
spirit echoing Spirit,
trusting in the victory of the vulnerable,
glimpsing the peace,
the wholeness,
the spaciousness,
the justice,
and the joy
that comes from following the Pioneer
made perfect in suffering,
striving and yearning and crying out
from the very depths and the heights
of the world's anguish and the world's bliss,
and so becoming friends and partners of God
in the divine creating…
