A Blessing to Bridge Cultures

2 11 2011

Recently in Brazil I concluded my report with this blessing:


May your shoes find their way to our doorstep

That we may greet one another soon.

May we share a cup of tea or strong coffee

That we might move from colleagues to friends.

May our hands join together as partners

And our fears slowly turn into trust.

Will you honor us by speaking your mind

That our thoughts be enriched by yours.

May the Spirit of God work within us

That our hearts grow together as one.
