Prayer for Healing after Surgery

My God of Health and Healing
Who has infinite power
I am in deepest gratitude to You.
You guided the surgeon’s hand
And restored the body and soul 
Of my dear sister.
You have gifted my family with
Renewed hope for the future.
Is it selfish of me to ask 
That she not be in pain?
She frequently tells me a story, 
First proclaiming the profound love
She felt for me, oh so many years ago.
As a youngster, I was crying from a fall
But she was unable to feel my pain.
She loved me so much
But couldn’t understand why,
Despite such love, 
She was unable to feel my pain.
I cannot feel her pain,
But I hope and pray
That the pain will dissipate,
Run away and never come back.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
