Reflection and Renewal: Brokenness Limits How We Give and Receive Love

God, you've created us for community and connection.

 Yet often we worry about being hurt by others who we think are broken and damaged, so we isolate ourselves.

 At the same time, we often struggle to see ourselves as anything other than broken, damaged goods, so we withdraw inward. In both instances, we keep ourselves from experiencing the transforming grace of relationship and connection.

So God, we need your grace. Thank you that your mercy is bottomless and limitless. Help us to mirror how you give and receive love.
