Clean up, Blessing Bags, and Letting Go

In Sunday Children’s RE we will be doing a clean-up project. 

Change for some is hard. What’s coming and the anticipation can be difficult. What are some active ways to combat the anxiety of a new school year, job, curriculum, or friend circle?

Meditation on Letting Go

By Carol Allman-Morton

Many of us carry a burden of worry.

Anxiety over the state of the world;

Worries about money

About our environment,

Our families

About peace and justice.

May we trust that nothing will get worse for us, putting that burden down for a moment.

May we let go of what weighs us down.

May we find that we can set down worry ,for longer and longer periods of time.

In our experience of letting go, may we be open to the possibility that we need not pick our worries back up.

May we find passion and strength to work for change where we have the power to do so, and to let go where we do not.

If not forever, let us put down any worries or anxiety, for our time of quiet.

May we be quiet together.
