May The Waters Gathered Here
May the Waters gathered here remind us what each of us brings to this community,
and of the waters that nourished us before we were even born,
that continue to give us sustenance and energy for our life journeys
and that of all creatures on this earth.
May we gratefully continue to "swim to the other side."
The final phrase is a reference to the song "Swimming to the Other Side" by Pat Humphries, a UU singer-songwriter.
