Choose to resolve conflict;
Choose agreement over anger;
Choose peace and understanding;
Choose to greet your enemy in friendship;
Choose to listen,
to walk together through life’s trials
Choose a partner;
be faithful in what you think and in what you do.
Choose two eyes and two hands,
Choose a life well lived.
Choose truthfulness where Yes is Yes
and No means No.
Be known for speaking the truth
for sharing God’s foolish wisdom.
Choose fellowship and seeking God,
finding who you are
and where you stand in all creation.

Live a life that others can look back on and declare.
“It is good.”

by love and grace and justice and mercy.
Choose your future.
Choose our future.
Choose a future for the world you inhabit,
Choose life ….
the life that God holds out before you
this day and every day.
