Love Is the Center and Foundation

[For two voices.]

Again we reground ourselves, here, in our highest values.
Love is the center and foundation of this faith.
Love is the power that holds us together as a community.
As we enter into worship, then, let us open our hearts
to the healing power of liberating Love.
Because Love is not only something we receive,
but something we practice in community,
let fall away
all that might distract us
from the whole-hearted practice of Love.
Let us be accountable to one another
for doing the work of living our shared values
through the spiritual discipline of Love.
As we continue to listen and learn, to act and grow,
may each unfold in wholeness—
both deeply loving and truly loved.
