Great Spirit of Life, be with us now as we honor these, our young adults.
By laying our hands on you, we infuse you with the power of our love. The many generations of families who have participated in the life of this congregation have left for you the legacy of their love and commitment. Those gathered here today leave a legacy for future generations. As we join together now, may the power of all be felt and known.
By laying our hands on you, we empower you to take your place in this community- no longer as children, but now, as young adults. We empower you to accept your responsibility as young adults, and as active participants in this Fellowship. We honor your place here and welcome you.
We pray that with our help and support, you may fully become who you are using the tools you have discovered in the course of your lives, and especially over the past few months.
We pray that your presence here guides us, teaches us and provides us with tools to become our full selves.
We call on all that is holy to guide you and to remind you that we will always be here for you.
Amen and Blessed Be.
