Our Beacon of Hope

Joseph M. Cherry

As we gather together for worship this morning,
Being both near and far,
We light our chalice,
As we do each week.
It is a symbol of our faith.

May its light be a beacon of hope for the many.
Those who feel lost
Those who feel threat
Those who feel tired
Those who are uncertain.

May our beacon of hope
Help you find home
Help you feel safe
Give you respite
And honor your searching mind and spirit.
