As we travel our Holy Week journey,
we take with us memories
of the paths that have brought us this far:
the hardships and bumps remind us
of our own strength and resilience;
the joy and smooth roads remind us
of the gifts and blessings we take with us.
We give thanks for the new ways that will emerge
and all of the challenges, fears, and possibilities
they will bring.
May we continue to follow in the way
that you are leading. O God,
with hopeful and daring hearts. Amen.
