Openings: “Seasons of Our Lives

Creator of all times and seasons, and of all the seasons of our lives, we gather in this place, thankful for the days that have been, even those that have tried our souls; and hopeful for the days that shall be, even those that shall demand of us the best that we have of faith and hope and courage; till we have become one with ourselves and thee in all the seasons to come—from the glad renewal of spring, to the summer autumn days of green and gold and yellow, and the shining colors of fruition and harvest; to the white wisdom days of winter where all things wait in patience for the change that shall bring transformation.
