Our Lives Intersect and Intertwine

Vines cross and intertwine themselves on a tree trunk

It is a wonder and mystery that our paths have crossed;
That in the immensity of time, in the vastness of space, we coincide here.
I am in awe at the ways in which our lives intersect and intertwine,
at the beauty we create when we gather.
May our coming together make us more compassionate,
more just, more caring, and more loving.
May our hearts and minds be open to this offering.
I am so glad you are here.
Let us worship, let us marvel at the miracle of being here, right now,
and the Mystery that has brought us together.
