Listen. Listen to silence. Listen to the wind. Listen to the stars.
Hear trees.
Dance to the beat of your neighbor’s heart.
Dance to the rhythm of your childhood dreams.
Sing and hum a wordless song to the tune of your rushing blood.
And Pray.
Pray with a fever that makes you sweat through February snow;
Pray with a fervor that gives you chills in July.
Shout your prayer like a howl—
Howl ‘til the sound of your soul touches clouds
And haunts the moon—
Come, let us howl our hallelujahs,
Come, let us pray and sing and celebrate.
Come, let us worship together.
