Annual Meeting Invocation

From the power of our memory and history,
With high hopes for the days that lie ahead,
We gather to craft the destiny we share with one another.

We gather with faith in the practice of democracy.
We gather with hearts and minds open
To the wisdom in every voice among us.

In our gathering,
May we dream and design a bold future.
May we bring our best selves to this service,
And may we dream these dreams
And do this work
With love.
