O Source of Peace, when despair for the world grows in us and we wake in the night at the least sound, in fear of what our lives and our children’s lives may be, let us go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water and the great heron feeds.

“The Peace of Wild Things,” Wendell Berry, alt.*

*To be used as the Centering Prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent: Peace (9 December) at Central UCC, Atlanta.
