It is not always easy to give what we have.
We count pennies.
We weigh the pros and cons.
We calculate what we have given before.
And we remind ourselves what we are giving now.
Even though it can take work for us to practice release,
We trust that you can take these gifts -
However freely our reluctantly given -
And use them to build a more beautiful world.
For that is who you are,
You are forever building castles out of sand,
Disciples our of people, and new life out of cautious gifts.
Right what is wrong.
Balance the systems of injustice.
Use these gifts to build the world that we can only imagine
But you can bring forth
In Christ's Name we pray,
