Paul Stephan Dodenhoff
Joy and grief
Health and sickness
Light and Darkness
Peace and anger
Life and death
Wholeness and brokeness
We each bring all of these here to this sanctuary of unity in diversity
For this one hour of this one day
And pour them out
Commingling the oil of our lives
To become the flame of this chalice
The symbol of our shared living faith.;
