May we be prophets
proclaiming the Reign of God in all things.
May we be mystics
experiencing a real sense of at-one-ness with God,
With all humanity and all of creation.
Mission is to go to a no-place, serve God’s nobodies
and (in the eyes of the world) accomplish no-thing.
In this may we realize we are at the center
of what time, meaning and history are all about.
O God, give us the courage to dream new dreams,
think new thoughts and go forward into the future
with the Spirit.
O God, fill us with the joy of the Gospel
and may we pass it on to others, pressed down, flowing
over, full measure, above and beyond.
