Prepent: Day 4 of 40

peace candle 2

The first shabbat of Elul brings with it the harvest of holy moments, tools, intentions from a year full of action of all sorts, from sacred to mundane and in between. Did I cultivate a habit or a way to breath and be more human this past year? more connected to my soul, the world, mystery?

Just two months ago we started praying this new mothers prayer+candle 4 peace on Fridays and saying this prayer of the mothers, for peace, for hope. Grateful for this custom, despite its tragic birth. Light a candle for the holy harvest. Shabbat Shalom.
