UU Lent 2022 – Day 3 – Breathe

“I do not wish to breathe another breath if it is not shared with others. The breath of life is not mine alone.

I brought myself to be with you, hoping that by inhaling the compassion, the courage, the hope found here, I can exhale the fear, the selfishness, the separateness I keep so close to my skin.

I cannot live another moment, at least not one of joy, unless you and I find our oneness somewhere among each other, somewhere between the noise, somewhere within the silence of the next breath.” – “The Breath of Life is not Mine Alone” by Rev. Dr. Kristin L. Harper

Sometimes we just need to breathe.
