Disciples of the Prince of Peace

and the many violations of life,
still we give thanks.

With humility we acknowledge
our general failure to imagine
much more compassionate alternatives to life in these times.

And when at last we realize
we don’t know where to go,
we are ready to be led into brighter days.

Disciples of the Prince of Peace
live in tension between grief for all that’s lost and never can be, 
and gratitude for all that’s given; an overflow of possibility.
