we spend a lot of time
talking about the things
we cannot do,

remind us, Surprising God
how we are able

to change the life
of a single child
by the gift of an hour
of our time;

to feed a hungry person
simply by
cutting the portions
we eat in half;

to provide a family
with a safe, affordable house
by spending a Saturday
with hammers and nails.

you give us the people to serve,
you fill us with gifts to use,
you provide all the time we need,

God of Grace,
may we stop talking
and start
