Closing Words: “With faith in the creative powers of life”
The Quakers speak not of a "worship service" but of their Meeting—hence this benediction:
With faith in the creative powers of life,
With hope for the future of life in this world,
With love for all others who share this life with us,
Let us go forward together in peace.
Our meeting has ended; let our service begin.
