Readings: “A Litany of Wholeheartednes

Because there have been times when shame has crushed our ability to be wholehearted

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.

Because we have not always had the courage to be imperfect

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.

Because we have struggled to have compassion for ourselves or others

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.

Because we have been afraid of our own vulnerability

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.

Because we are sometimes too scared to live authentically

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.

Because we want to be whole-hearted people, confident in our worthiness and our belonging

We let go of who we ought to be and embrace who we are.
