In a world of crippling confusion, we are tempted to trade divine mystery for certainty and platitudes.
Today, we resist that temptation, and instead make these confessions with humility, joy, and confidence.
Everyone and everything has value.
Because no interaction, no conversation, no experience is wasted.
Everyone and everything is connected.
Because the divine community, divine energy, divine animation pulses through all.
Everyone and everything belongs.
Because there is spirit and goodness, light and life in all.
Everyone and everything has hope.
Because none is truly outside of the presence and love of God.
With confidence through the Holy Spirit we make these confessions. Amen.
