God, we give you thanks for these three women: for the gift of their lives, and for the gift of their presence among us. Grant them courage and strength as they venture out to new places. Help them to remember that they are precious in your sight, made in your image, holy and blessed. Help them to remember that they are beloved: loved by their families, by this congregation, and by you. Help them to remember that they are called, created to cultivate beauty and justice and joy. Fill their hearts with your spirit, and keep them safe in your grace. Amen.
