Called


We are called to form the beloved community in the present moment, for it is not a community of the future or the past.

We are called to form the beloved community in the midst of loss and uncertainty, when nothing is finished.

We are called to gather here and join hands in a circle at the end of time, which is always now, because we are the eternal survivors.

We are called to nourish one another, not with what the world calls wealth, but with the abundance of laughter and tears, and silent jewels of listening.

We are called to form the beloved community in the midst of darkness, because we are the light.
