Betty Jo Middleton
As we gather here together
May we be attentive one to another.
May we listen carefully, may we freely speak.
May we be respectful of one another.
May we be serious, yet not somber.
May we be light of heart
And full of good cheer.
May we work toward common goals.
May we be mindful of our religious community
And aware of our responsibilities.
May we look into one another's eyes
And see ourselves reflected.
May we be attentive to one another
And to the task at hand.
