Yes. You read that right. I am writing this on April 15th in response to a sacred response to taxes that I found written by Diana Butler Bass on Twitter. I am sharing it here: She prays as she mails her taxes. (Prayer below). I wonder what our world would be like if we approached even taxes as a sacred response? Thank you, God, that we live in a nation wise enough to understand that when we share goods we create more good, especially for the poor, those suffering, and those in need. Multiply this tax payment so hungry people will be fed, prisoners will be treated justly, students educated, our parks and natural resources cared for.Lift my heart toward gratitude today. That my family can contribute to the good of this land. That we have a small part in making a great country. Forgive...
Merry Christmas! I found a beautiful prayer I'd like to share today: Our Mother, who art within us, We celebrate your many names. Your wisdom come. Your will be done, Unfolding from the depths within us. Each day you give us all that we need. You remind us of our limits and we let go. You support us in our power and we act with courage. For you are the dwelling place within us, the empowerment around us, and the celebration among us. As it was in the very beginning, may it be now. ~ Patricia Lynn Reilly
