Alpha and Omega, beginning and end, we come before you now at the close of the semester. We are weary and elated, working hard and longing for rest. Give us the strength to finish well, to pause for moments of joy, and to find you in the midst of our toil. May our study this semester feed our spiritual and communal life in meaningful ways, long after we close our last textbook. In the name of mystery and wisdom we pray, Amen.
We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this image. What are you holding onto at the close of this semester?
