A Prayer for the Church

We will keep practicing love until we get it right:

 Drawn to the round table, living in life-centered diversity of community

We will keep celebrating the sacred until we embody it.

In authenticity and prayer, an embodiment of Christ, an embodiment of spirituality

We will keep calling for justice until it prevails.

As a critical yet hopeful, prophetic minority

Following a deeper understanding of the way of the cross.

 We will keep longing for kin(g)dom until kin(g)dom comes.

 Teaching love and justice, making earth like heaven.
