Activity time: 5 minutes

Light the chalice and offer these words from Sophia Lyon Fahs:

We pause in reverence before all

intangible things

that eyes see not, nor ears detect

that hands can never touch

that space can not hold

and time can not measure.

There is never an end to our yearning to know the unknown

after all our labor at learning.

There is never an end to our trying the untried

Fling wide the windows, O my soul!

The bright beams of morning are warm.

Lead the group in singing "Voice Still and Small," Hymn 391 in Singing the Living Tradition.
