Again the Nuns lead us where we may dare not tread, but we are with them as women, friends, sisters and in love grace and Spirit because She is with us and we know it in hearts, our minds and our souls, forever, Amen

Dangerous Women Creed
by Lynne Hybels

Dear God, please make us
dangerous women.
May we be women who acknowledge our power
to change, and grow,
and be radically alive for God.
May we be healers of wounds
and righters of wrongs.
May we weep with those who weep and speak for those who cannot
speak for themselves.
May we cherish children, embrace the elderly, and empower the poor.
May we pray deeply and teach wisely.
May we be strong and gentle leaders.
May we sing songs of joy
and talk down fear.
May we never hesitate to let passion push us, conviction compel us,
and righteous anger energize us.
May we strike fear into all that is unjust and evil in the world.
May we dismantle abusive systems and silence lies with truth.
May we shine like stars in a darkened generation.
May we overflow with goodness in the name of God and by the power of Jesus.
And in that name and by that power, may we change the world.
Dear God, please make us dangerous women. Amen.
