This is a blessing from Celtic Daily Prayer, a resource from the Northumbria Community I picked up at the Renovare conference I participated in Friday evening and Saturday in Indianapolis. This event, featuring Richard Foster, Juanita Rasmus of St. Paul's UMC of Houston (I've got to see this church in which a third of the 9,000 participants are homeless or formerly homeless neighbors!), and Chris Webb was partly sponsored by the Indianapolis Center for Congregations (thanks, Brent Bill & company). I find in the Renovare initiative much that resonates with my own journey and hopes for the future of the church.
In light of the Random Designer posting and comments, this blessing is well within its purview.
You are not an accident.
Even at the moment of your conception,
out of many possibilities
only certain cells combined,
survived, grew to be you.
You are unique.
You were created for a purpose.
God loves you.
