Championing a holistic approach to spirituality and physical well-being.

Loving the Stranger…

Let our hearts be open to love
As was Abraham and Sarah’s desert home
Open from every side in order to fully welcome the stranger
So too may we open our hearts to love without restraint.

Let God open our hearts and our souls
To the possibility of loving without boundaries
To the prospect of living lives soaked with meaning
To the hope of attaining emotional and spiritual well-being
To the blessing of abounding prosperity.

Let our hearts be open to love
Like the innocence of a child
who knows no sadness or pain or loss.
Let us learn to love again without fear
And find gratitude in moments of connection.

For in those moments
God is beyond present
And we are loved.
