Spirit of Life,
Great immensity of love that birthed the stars
and washes through our bodies
with every beat of our hearts:
Now is the time when fall winds blow
singing through the pines
whispering through the oaks
rustling through the grass.
Open us to your cleansing breath.
Let your moving, changing winds
clear away our fear and confusion,
leaving us fresh of heart.
Let us then be ready to do Your work:
to bind each other’s wounds,
to share all that we have,
to mend the tears in the web of life.
