In this time of the Pandemic, we are changing and being changed. What once was urgent in our daily lives is now put on pause. Other more immediate ways of living and dying are transforming us.As we contemplate and experience our collective living and dying, we pray that we can be even more unified as One in God’s Love all across the world. There is great hope in all that is happening in this world, we embrace it all.Now in these unprecedented times, our world is hushed . . . In the quiet and the chaos,we’re witnessing the wellspring of new life, even in the midst of death. All the world is now, perhaps for the first time ever, singularly focused on the healing of one anotherand the healing of “this fragile Earth, our island home.”Almost since time began, this is also the spirit in which our evenings always have begun. At this holy hour of twilight, we are hushed throughout all time, breathing in more deeply, lighting our candles, pausing at the end of the day together to pray into the love of God’s welcoming embrace.In this widened space at the end of the day, our prayers encircle the world continuously. We rest into the power of quietness and the healing touch of God.
