Christ is before all things,
and in Christ all things hold together.
The holy urge that birthed us
is the energy of wholeness,
self-flowing of love,
desire for the well-being of all Creation.
Christ is the body of this love,
of which you, and all Creation, are part.
Everything holds together
in this divine longing.
This love contains everything,
even what is cruel and senseless.
Don't let evil convince you of anything.
Stay mindful of the sacred wholeness.
Let yourself be gathered up in its light.
Even in chaos and darkness,
you walk with the Beloved.
That's what it means every time the sun rises.
