Prayer for the Lamp Keeper
My prayer for you today is that you understand that you cannot be and
say everything. That you are a light, a lamp in the night to help people
find their way, but you cannot be their way.
Remember also that a steady lamp by which others may guide their
own journey, is a gift from and to the universe.
Be steady, but do not deny your own humanity. Do not forget to
take breaks. Do not let your desire to be that steward of that lamp keep you
too long from your own journey.
Share the burden
Share the responsibility
Share the honor with others.
- The Rev. Joseph M. Cherry
