God, how would you have me be in the world today?

God, how would you have me be in the world today?
Be welcoming and open,
like the meadows and the plains.
Hold on to nothing, and meet all
without judgement or opinion.
Be a container for others to inhabit.
Let them hear and see themselves
through your clear and open spirit.
Invite with your eyes, heart, and speech.
Be a resting pace for the sojourners
you meet today.
Refresh with your encouragement,
purify with your hope,
nourish with your trust,
strengthen with your faith.
Let the borders of your being extend outward;
make a safe place for others
to roam, rest, and replenish.
All are welcome. All are welcome.
