As we enter into silence we remember the many connections that sustain and
uplift us through this religious community. We remember those who preceded us,
whose contributions built a free faith, who built this home for its practice.
those around us, whose continuing care in thought and deed is an ongoing
blessing in our lives, keeping the dream of free religion alive in our time.
We remember those who will follow us, the children presently in our care and
those not yet come to light, who will inherit the work of our hands and hearts.
In the silence now, we sit surrounded by these many connections, visible and
invisible, that remind us every day that we are not alone.
Peace be with us, and with all under the sun.
