It hides in every corner,

it crosses every boundary;

Your life, O God, ignores limits.

 

We know it in the safe ones we love and enjoy;

but, if we look, it appears in those who are different,

challenging,

frightening,

unknown,

strange;

Your life, O God, ignores limits.

 

It’s easy to see in those who are healthy and comfortable;

vibrant, joyful and privileged to have access

to the wonder-inspiring experiences that life offers;

but, if we look, it appears in those who seem lost to life,

poor and weak,

sick and broken and unable to move

beyond their limited horizons;

Your life, O God, ignores limits.

 

And so we celebrate your life, wherever it may be found,

and we commit ourselves to be life-seekers,

discerning and acknowledging life

in every person, every moment and every space.

 

Amen.
