Creative and Courageous

Let these be our sending words: 

As peacemakers we call upon the Creator and invoke the creative Spirit that unites us. 

May we be creative and courageous enough to orchestrate the song of transformation so the world can hear it through the deafening noise. 

May we be creative and courageous enough to be the light so those can see a new way through the darkness.

May we be creative and courageous enough to touch the untouchables so they may know what peace feels like.

May we be creative and courageous enough to exude the fragrance of forgiveness so people can smell hope through the stench of pride. 

May we be creative and courageous enough to be the salt so others may taste the flavors of God. 

Sisters and Brothers, as you go, go in peace knowing that peacemaking is a creative and holy art. 

Amen.
