Today we gather with the saints and sinners and souls who have been, are being, and will be this congregation, as we open up a new path to the future.
Come you who emerge into this place as an act of liberation. Come you who seek courage, and you who have more courage than you realize.
We are mindful of our past, and we have hope for the future.
Dear God, Spirit of Life and Love, ...
In a sign of community and mutuality, let us share a sign of the force with one another.
May the power of transfiguring love evolve through and among us.
