A prayer from Sunday's communion service.


May you bless the space between us
the air we breathe
the words unfolded in our speaking
the touch that breaks our boundaries
and opens up
the place in which we stand on our own

May you bless the space between us
of tables
that make community
where bread breaks and wine spills
with the joy of love
wrapped up in its pain
and words of forgiveness
break free from the binding of the wounds
that have been inflicted on us
and as we have inflicted on others

May you bless the space between us
of cups and plates
displaying your grace
that wait in invitation
for us to come
and hold
and share
wheat and grape
grown through the dark earth
and into the blue light of dawn
and bearing heaven’s gift
among us

Such holy hopes
in such lowly things

Great God
may you bless the space between us
where silence speaks with forgiveness
waiting speaks with peace
breaking speaks with love
and sharing speaks with grace

May we be here
and know here
is home

light of life
and fullness resurrection
bless this space between us
that we will find you here

So be it
