Faithful Creator,

You are the source and resource of all purposed and created life.

In an attitude of gratitude I accept your forgiveness and grace to forgive myself.

I accept your encouragement to learn what it means to be authentically human and make peace with my own humanity,

So that I can accept the sacredness of other beings.

With thanksgiving, I accept the spiritual, ethical, and moral responsibility for my own inner healing and joy.

I embrace the mystery of healthy loving relationships

As I learn to be an agent of change, reason, and tenderness upon the earth

That is an outpouring of your love for all life.

I accept your help so that I may learn to live honorably in covenant community,

Lifting my voice in care over criticism.
