Created in Your image we spill coffee.
Created in Your image we lose our memories.
Created in Your image we lose our reasoning skills and imagination.
Created in Your image we lose our emotional and relational skills.
Created in Your image we are injured by accidents.
Created in Your image we do not hear or see or speak.

And yet, You call us beloved.
Your name creation blessed.
In our vulnerability we are created in Your image.
And yet we are more than these, as You are more than vulnerability.

In our community with one another is our strength.
Created in Your image we have one another to clean up the coffee and to tell the stories that we forget.
Created in Your image we trust one another and You to remember to whom we belong.
Created in Your image we have You to behold in wonder and awe.
