And now as you go out into this day and into this year:
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
challenge you to learn and to teach; to explore and to think; to imagine and to dream; to ask and to seek; to welcome and to love.
May the Lord be kind and gracious to you.
strengthen you to care for creation; be a voice for justice; work for equality; persevere in optimism; live in hope.
May the Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.
empower you to serve; call you to act; dare you to speak; and fortify you for the journey.
Now and forevermore.
