Now you are the body of Christ,
and each of you is a part of it.
May you strive to find your part in Christ’s body –
arms, hands, lips.
May you speak for the voiceless
act for the helpless
carry the weak.
And may you employ God’s blessings in your life
not for your comfort,
but as an extension of the healing and grace
of the giver of every good and perfect gift.
