God of the Cosmos, who keeps the stars aloft and the planets spinning, hold us in your tender embrace today. We give thanks for the warmth of our homes and our hearts in this season marked by so many uncertainties. Give us the strength to continue to love our neighbors by wearing masks and social distancing. May we find opportunities to connect with each other in ways that nourish our soul. God, we celebrate the vaccine distribution efforts already underway. May these efforts only increase so that the most vulnerable among us may receive the protection they so desperately need. We look forward with hope to the day that we are all vaccinated and can safely embrace one another once more. In the name one who heals all things, we pray. Amen.
We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this image. How can you find ways to embrace the gifts of this day?
