A Ritual of Joys and Sorrows

Scott Phillips


Ours is welcoming community where we find connection;   
...a spiritual community where we find meaning;

Ours is a sharing community where our joys are amplified;   
...a caring community where our sorrows are lessened;

We take this moment to reflect on our joys and sorrows and acknowledge the mutual support of our community;

If you would like, you may come forward and release a stone in the water in silence or with a brief verbal expression of a special joy or sorrow.


May we remember those who have spoken, those they have named, and those we hold in silence in our hearts.
