A Litany on the Pebbles of Love

In the face of the boulders of disrespect for all who are different,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF RESPECT FOR THE DIGNITY AND DIVERSITY OF EVERY PERSON.

In the face of the boulders of having it always my way,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF MUTUALITY.

In the face of the boulders of tuning out others,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF LISTENING LOVE.

In the face of the boulders of grudges and retaliation,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF FORGIVING LOVE.

In the face of the boulders of using more than our share,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF SIMPLE SUFFICIENCY.

In the face of the boulders of violence against other species and the earth herself,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF BEAUTY AND RESPECT.

In the face of the boulders of violent entertainment,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF PLAYFULNESS.

In the face of the boulders of discrimination and exploitation because of race, age, gender, or sexual orientation,
LET US BE PEBBLES OF SOLIDARITY.

In the face of escalating violence, escalate love.

As participants take their pebbles -
 pray THE PEACE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS
