Dear Friends,

 We hope that you are safe and well.

 With all the suffering in Afghanistan and Haiti and in refugee/immigrant camps and with COVID and wildfires and Washington are hearts are heavy. Today's Meditation features a diverse choir and orchestra singing hopefully: "How Can Our Hearts Keep from Singing?" and the bee, the butterfly and the breeze, the oceans, the stars and the trees join in.

Dear Friends,

 We hope that you are safe and well.

 Today's Meditation features Rev. Vicki Kemper, recalling her childhood memory of God speaking in sunbeams: "Of Cartoons, Children and Still-speaking God." How is God speaking to you? Where do you perceive God best?

 We invite you to join us as we commit ourselves to working tirelessly to end systemic and structural racism in our society, in the church, in healthcare, in the workplace--wherever it shows up so that everyone may come to have more abundant life. May this meditation nourish our contemplative-active hearts and sustain all of us in action.

Dear Friends,

 We hope that you are safe and well.

 Today's Meditation features Scott Cairns reflecting on "Possible Answers to Prayers" prompting us to continue our journey from the way we look at people and the world towards the way that God looks at people and the world.

Dear Friends,

 We hope that you are safe and well.

 Today's Meditation features Matt Naveau reflecting on how his Grandmother's life taught him about caring for creation by living a sustainable life, living a simple life, living in solidarity with others and living a prayerful life. What are we learning from the Wisdom Figures in our lives?

Dear Friends,

 We hope that you are safe and well.

 Today's Meditation features John O'Donohue reflecting on the Blessing of Presence: "May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder." It comes to us from Irene Desharnais and her Genesis Prayer Group.
