Invocations: “It Is Good To Be Together

Good Morning and Welcome!

With thankful hearts we have come together this morning
to celebrate the bounty of the day,
to bask in the warmth of this community,
to share with friends the tides of our lives,
to entertain, perennially, our hopes for a better future.

We join together, this morning as always, to resist
injustice and inequality, wherever they may be found.

Our hearts are touched by the human need we feel around us,
whether far away or within reach of our hand.

We come here, to be together, because this is how we believe our lives are best lived:

  • in questioning and in conversation,
    in compassion and in service,
    in gratitude and in joy,
    in companionship, and in love.

It is good to be together with you this morning!
