As we look to tomorrow

As we look to tomorrow…..

As we look to tomorrow,

let us today embrace the past

with remembrance and

the future with longing.

Let us face our future with confidence

and hope, daring to stay open

to whatever today or tomorrow will offer;

daring to go fearlessly into things without knowing how they will turn out,

daring to keep on going, even when something doesn’t work for the first time.

Let us pray that we may travel into our future with a trust

that enables us to put our hand into the hand of God,

confident that it will be better than a light,

and safer than a known way.
