May we all be like birch trees, white as snow,

righteously planted  by the refreshing, life-giving,

aquamarine rivers of our most Holy, omnipotent God, 

so that one of our greatest joys is found in the flourishing

and building up of one another. May we be Holy, tender,

compassionate, generous, humble, righteous, Christ-centered

practitioners of our Triune God’s magnificent love and grace.
