Knowing that we do not always live up to our best expectations of ourselves, let us in quietness seek the good within, which some call the inner light, and some "a spark of the divine."
Knowing that we live in a society which falls far short of the ideal, let us in quietness resolve to do one thing this week to aid those suffering from want and injustice.
Knowing that the earth is our home and that we have too often abused and poisoned it, let us in quietness consider how we might be part of making it more healthful for all living things.
Knowing that each of us has some sorrow or anxiety hidden within, let us consider in quietness how we may reach out to one another with our smiles, our handclasps, and our encouraging words.
