Openings: “Spirit of life and love, we have gathered here in search of answers to hard questions.”
Spirit of life and love, we have gathered here in search of answers to hard questions. We have come in search of understanding, in search of community. We have come in search of hope and healing.
Let this be a place not only of searching, but of discovery. Let this be a place of learning, but of wisdom.
Let this be a place not only of meeting, but of connection. And let this be a place where healing fosters giving and hope fosters service.
This is our prayer: that we may create here a circle of love, ever expanding, ever growing, as we seek to know you, the source of our being. Amen and blessed be.
