Renewal in a Weary World

Three orange and black monarch butterflies on a lavender blossom, surrounded by other lavender blossoms

Welcome, all who seek renewal in a weary world.
   Welcome, all who come with love and energy to share.
Welcome, to those who worry for the future.
   Welcome, each one who is grateful for today.
Know that in this place, you are not alone.
   In community we share our strength with one another
   and we keep the flame of love burning bright.
Know that in this place, responsibility is shared.
   Here, tradition holds us; ancestors shine a light from the past.
Here, the young lift their bright faces, and beckon us onward.
   Take my hand, and we can go on together.
