Welcome to our class. We hope to see you soon!

 

O Extravagant God,

in this ripening, golden-tinged autumn,

waken in me a sense of joy in just being alive,

a joy in nothing in general yet everything in particular:

joy in sun and rain bringing earth to harvest,

joy in afternoon light through red leaves,

joy in moonlight glowing in a velvet sky,

joy in your remembrance in the bread and wine,

joy in the smell of dawn, a touch, a song,

joy in having what I cannot live without -

cherished people to hold, laugh and cry with,

joy in love, joy in you.

We receive it all as grace upon grace.  

Amen
