A Prayer Before Annual Meeting

Seen from slightly behind, a person with long hair gestures with their hands while talking.

May our minds and hearts be opened this morning
so that the day is able to blossom
and flourish in life giving ways.

May we view each other as partners, comrades, 
friends on the journey, headed in a 
direction together toward wholeness.

May our voices be gentle and purpose-filled.
May our energy create space for everyone.
May our hands open to one another as help when needed.

May our values shine through our decisions
and our strivings be made clear 
through our discussions.

May our lives speak of a shared future
where we transform the world
through acts of love and justice.

Blessed be. May it be so. Amen.
