Healthy religion, as the very word re-ligio (“rebinding”) indicates, is the task of putting our divided realities back together again: human and divine, male and female, heaven and earth, sin and salvation, mistake and glory. – Richard Rohr
You knit us together
And breathe us into being
When our lives remind us of our frailty
When they unravel
You gather us in again
Reworking the fragments
With grace upon grace
Until the beautiful new is born
Help us cling to this promise
Especially in the between time
Trusting the new is coming
Glory to you, our great Love.
Glory to you, our Resurrection.
Glory to you.
