What Does It Mean to Bless?

Eric Williams
What does it mean to bless?

To bless does not mean
Saying magical words
Changing the mind of God
Or altering the course of the cosmos.

To bless does mean
Reminding each other of our gifts
Remembering the wisdom that is within us
And recalling our common purpose.

The choices we make and the work we do
Are how we bless each other and the world.

May the words we say
And the songs we sing
Name the wholeness we are
And still yet seek.
