Call to Presence (2012-2013)

(Often I would open Sunday Service with these words)


Here within these old stone walls,

here in this community of love and justice,

we pause in our busy lives,

to consider what is worthy of our

deepest yearnings.


In the time we are given here,

may we pay attention to wonder of each moment,

may we grieve what is lost,

and may we be grateful

for our life on this beautiful earth


and may we prepare ourselves

for the work love calls us to do.

Just as we are,

may we be the beloved community.
