Opening Words: “In this quiet hour may our spirits be renewed.

In this quiet hour may our spirits be renewed.

In this gathering of friends may we be ready to extend ourselves to those in need, and with trust to receive the hand that is offered.

In this community of ideals may we remember the principles that guide us and reflect upon those things that give meaning to our lives, renewing our dedication to serve the highest that we know.

In this time of worship, may our minds be open to new truth, and our hearts be receptive to love, as we give thanks for this life we are blessed to share.
