Invocations : “As the Rain has washed our land

As the rain has washed our land this season, may we enter this morning with hearts washed clean of complaints or bitterness.  May we begin this morning by intentionally relaxing the tensions we carry, the strains of those things we cannot abandon, the responsibilities of our lives.

As the sun has warmed our land this season, may we allow the warmth of this community to heal our broken places . . . may the fog be lifted so we can see each other clearly.  May we rejoice in the blessing of companions who, if we will open ourselves just a little, will truly greet us with compassion and care.

As the earth, nourished by rain, brings forth flowers to surround us with beauty, may we too allow our spirits to bloom even as we acknowledge the complexities of our days.
