a spring prayer

Words from Leunig’s

A Common Prayer:

Dear God,

We celebrate spring’s returning

and the rejuvenation of the natural world.

Let us be moved by this vast and gentle insistence

that goodness shall return,

that warmth and life shall succeed,

and help us to understand our place within this miracle.

Let us see that as a bird builds its nest,


with bits and pieces,

so we must build human faith.

It is a simple duty;

it is our highest art;

it is our natural and vital role

within the miracle of spring:

the creation of faith.

to all you that came for the weekend and all of the communality peeps who gave of their time and resources to host guests...much thanks!


it was a very full and blessed weekend.  yet again we are reminded that hosting a school nourishes us every bit as much as it demands.


thanks again for all the help.  check out pics from the weekend here...if you took photos and can share them with us please leave a link in the comments.  i thought this pic of our kids sharing and receiving  communion captures the spirit of mutuality and humility that permeates these schools for conversion.  i love the two little fingers (belonging to asher) reaching out from under the table.
