Day 364

A prayer of redemption: We all misstep in our lives, we all fail to live up to our best selves.  We carry guilt and shame as psychological, physical and spiritual burdens.  These burdens often define who we are.  Redemption is the process of first owning the shame, and then re-contextualizing how it will define us.  We need not be burdened by our mistakes if we learn and grow from them, transform them into new insight and righteous action.  May we seek redemption for ourselves, and facilitate it in others: it is perhaps the most humane of human activities.  We are thankful for our collective Redemption.  Blessed Be, and Amen.
