May we make time, O God, to pause each day
and reflect on what has been, and wonder:
what has been worth holding on to;
what has encouraged us; what has strengthened us;
what has hurt us; what have we questioned?
And in such reflection, may we begin to discover
what is lasting, what is worth holding on to,
what is worth letting go, and in such choices,
may we choose the kind of future
that is waiting for us when the doors open,
and we reshape the world once more.
