Grace and Peace to you. If the foot would say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. —1 Corinthians 12.15

Now we are beginning to understand we are one body. We are all dependent and intertwined with so many, even far away. A stranger's hand-washing is my health, a worker's delivery is my life. The well-being of my neighbor is my well being. I love my neighbor as myself— not just as much as myself but as the rest of of myself. Blessed Oneness, Divine Wholeness, bless our unity, that in it as readily as we spread disease we may spread love. Give us your compassion to care for the least, for what we do to them we do to you, and to ourselves. May we trust the global impact of our individual actions. May your one Spirit bring together our one humanity. You who are the One, may we be one. Bless our one, holy, ailing body with your mercy and your grace.
