As we gather together this morning
Opening

As we gather together this morning,
May we learn to recognize and affirm


The pieces of possibility --


The bits of good -- we bring.
May we encourage

rather than control;
Love rather than possess;


Enable rather than envy.

Allowing our individual gifts to weave a patchwork of peace:


The soft deep blue of sensitivity and

understanding;
The red energy of creativity;


The white heat of convictions;


The risky, fragile green of new growth;


The golden flashes of gratitude;


The warm rose of love.

Each of us is indispensable
If we are to

minister to a broken and wounded world.
Together, in our gathered diversity,

we form the whole.
So be it.
