Bring healing to our lives
sowing beauty, sowing life
[prayer: “Bring Many Healings” by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan]
1. Bring healing to our cities
where people gather and move, eat, drive and wait.
Architecture for businesses and housing, streets and sidewalks instilled with a grounding trust in our neighbors.
2. Bring healing to our politics:
Respectful conversation, careful listening to what’s beneath the words,
a generous allowing for differences in order to share life.
Bring healing to our neighborhoods.
Yards, alleys, work and play, families of all shapes and sizes.
Sharing space and time, giving always the benefit of the doubt.
3. Bring healing to our bodies:
Blood, skin, bone, chemistry and organs working together in harmony
Bring healing to our wild spaces:
habitats for those underground, on the surface, in the seas, in the air.
Spaces for oaks, for prairie grasses, for wetlands.
