Here Is the Place to Be Forgiven

One person sits alone in a row of empty church pews.

Spirit of Life, Spirit of Love, Spirit of Generosity,
As we draw near to that quiet essential side of ourselves,
may we open enough to consider the sacred choices we make
each minute, each hour, each day that add up to a lifetime.
Let us become aware that here is the place to be forgiven,
and to forgive ourselves for any past thoughts and actions;
here is a place to begin again with love.
As we are forgiven, let us open our hearts to forgive others,
to pray for them well-being and joy,
that they be lifted from worry and burden into peace and abundance,
may we all be blessed with riches of the spirit
and moment upon moment of peace and serenity.
