Opening

As we enter this sacred, silent space,
Let us renew both our commitment and our covenant:

There are those among us who have endured a loss in the past week;
May their hope be uplifted again in this community of faith.

There are those among us who have struggled with hardship in the past week;
May they find renewed strength in this community of faith.

There are those among us who have wrestled with questions that seem to have no answer in the past week;
May they find sanctuary during their search in this community of faith.

There are those among us who have cherished an unexpected joy in the past week;
May their rejoicing be celebrated in this community of faith.

As we commit to continue our free and responsible search for Truth, may we covenant to honor the many paths that have led us to this community of faith.
So may it be.
