For our community gathered here, for the spirit that called us together and drew us to this place:
We give thanks this day.
For moments we have shared with others; for times when we have reached out across barriers of distance and fear; for times when others have reached out to us; for moments when we have discovered another along our path:
For this community of celebration and growth, introspection and solitude, and for those moments of "that peace which passes all understanding":
For our gathering together out of distant places; for our weaving together out of many separate selves this hour of celebration and worship:
