A Message to All the Dangerous Women
May we acknowledge our power to change, and grow,
and be alive for God
May we be healers of wounds and righters of wrongs
May we weep with those who weep and speak for those
who cannot speak for themselves
May we cherish children, embrace the elderly,
and empower the poor
May we pray deeply and teach wisely
May we be strong and gentle leaders
May we sing songs of joy and talk down fear
May we never hestitate to let passion push us,
conviction compel us, and righteous anger energize us
May we strike fear into all that is unjust and evil in
May we dismantle abusive systems and silence lies
May we shine like stars in a darkened generation
May we overflow with goodness in the name of God and
by the power of Jesus. And in that name and by that
power may we change the world.
That is what I want to be and that is what I hope you will be.
All of us.
