God is creating new paths and possibilities,
as we prepare for where we are going.

Christ is freeing us with newfound love and grace,
as we learn from where we have been.

The Spirit is revealing new dreams to guide us,
as we start our journey home on a new path.

We take courage in the assurance that God goes with us;
we affirm our call to go where Christ leads; and
we trust the Spirit to guide us through the challenging space between,
where we have been, where we are, and where we are going.
Surely, we are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
