As I celebrate the new year with my family, I wish all of you a prosperous year filled with hope, renewed energy and peace.
I leave you with a prayer written by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon.
“A Prayer for the Millennium”
May respect crowd out the weed of violence
and Community spring from the ashes of isolation.
May the stories of our grandmothers and grandfathers
once again nourish the growing souls of our children.
May we see the Divine in one another and in nature
that the Earth may be healed and all her children
have an abundance of food, freedom, and loving-kindness
as we give willingly and with heartfelt joy to one another.
May the music of shared laughter replace the cries of suffering
as the Great Tree of Peace takes root in every heart.
May we offer a renewed and resurrected World
to the Creator with infinite gratitude and thanksgiving.
Happy New Year!
