Scripture
For the whole law is summed up
in a single commandment,
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Galatians 5:14

A Look at Joy
Thanks to the ear
that someone may hear

Thanks to seeing
that someone may see

Thanks to feeling
that someone may feel

Thanks to touch
that one may be touched

Thanks to flowering of white moon
and spreading shawl of black night
holding villages and cities together

Prayer
Give us eyes to see and ears to hear, O Lord.
Amen.
