The Holy Dwells in Each of Us

Lit candles held in a row of cupped hands

This was written for Christmas Eve, or other occasions when people are each holding a candle.

The spirit of the holy dwells in each of us.
The spirit of love dwells in each of us.
May the flames in our hands remind us that
Eternal Love dwells in our hearts.
May the flames in our hands remind us that
The Spirit of Life dwells among us as we gather as a faith community.
May the flames in our hands remind us that
The arc of the universe needs our embodied love and faith to bend toward justice.
