May this my life touch healingly, lovingly, those in greatest need.
May I bear witness to my faith, even when to do so seems too great a risk.
O, send forth me, spirit, yet leave a tap root here to sustain me and to twine with roots of lovely, loving others, whose spirits have welled a while with mine.
O Send Forth Me (form for corporate worship)
O, send forth us, spirit, forth to do well our work, work of our lives, our living.
May these our lives touch healingly, lovingly, those in need of love and healing.
May we bear witness to our faith, even when to do so seems too great a risk.
O, send forth us, spirit, yet leave us tap roots here to sustain us and to twine with roots of these our lovely, loving others, whose spirits have welled a while together.
