Restless Discomfort

Kim Werling's Barn near Bethlehem Lutheran Church
 Ossian, Indiana

A Franciscan blessing for YOU

May God bless you with a restless discomfort
about easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships,
so that you may seek truth boldly and love deep within your heart.

May God bless you with holy anger at injustice, oppression,
and exploitation of people, so that you may tirelessly work for
justice, freedom, and peace among all people.

May God bless you with the gift of tears to shed with those who suffer
from pain, rejection, starvation, or the loss of all that they cherish, so that you may
reach out your hand to comfort them and transform their pain into joy.

May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that
you really CAN make a difference in this world, so that you are able,
with God's grace, to do what others claim cannot be done.

And the blessing of God the Supreme Majesty and our Creator,
Jesus Christ the Incarnate Word who is our brother and Saviour,
and the Holy Spirit, our Advocate and Guide, be with you
and remain with you, this day and forevermore.

  1. Hey, Connie, this is my barn! Was so strange seeing it on Pinterest! Bienz' property line runs just to the north of the grainery. Nice picture, it's alittle rundown. It will be torn down as soon as the wheat is harvested...
