A Bathroom Blessing
God of all,
Who planted a seed in our minds
Who encouraged us to live into our covenant of welcome and
who indeed sees humans for who they are
And each of them quite, quite expressive of the sacred.
We give thanks that his project was
able to become reality
From a dream
Although still nearing completion,
it is already causing hearts
To be stirred
And minds to be changed
and the fullness of your love to be shown.
So help us to finish up those details
To find those soft places in our hearts to welcome all
Not just in the bathroom when we might be right next to one another
But still with our own privacy.
But also as we exist and continue to live our faith in the world
But it’s true that maybe there is some awkwardness in
Blessing a bathroom
But somehow it seems important
that as we celebrate that we are
We invite your presence and
remember that your dreams are
Expressed in our work
In our intentions
And in our generosity.
Thank you for guiding this process
For linking us up with amazing skilled visionaries and workers
And for helping us to live into all that this bathroom represents
In that spirit of inclusion and with gratitude.
