I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Ocean Lament

Ocean Lament

We hold in prayer and lament this day the suffering of all
life-forms in the Gulf of Mexico. We grieve the marring of
your creation, and the threat to coastal ways of life. Have mercy, have mercy.
Grant wisdom and perseverance to all who
struggle to contain this disaster. Let those who lost their lives in peace. Send your Holy Spirit to create anew the
face of this earth. ~ Teresa Berger
