The yearning to be holy

the yearning to be holy
May we find each other in the silence between the words.
May we heal the loneliness of our expertise with the wisdom of our service.
May we honour in ourselves and all others
the deep and simple impulse to live,
to find sacred space and open land.
May we remember that the yearning to be holy is a part of everyone
and the only hope for the next thousand years.
