may god give you the grace never to sell yourself short.
the grace to risk something big,
for something good.
the grace to know that the world is now too dangerous for anything but truth,
and too small for anything but love.
may god take your minds and think through them.
may god take your lips and speak through them,
and may god take your hearts,
and set them on fire.
Written by William Coffin and adapted by Stephen Shoemaker
