spirit moves, soul births song and hope fills life and I am not alone
It is a new way, but an old way, that we come together in worship today.
Give up the fight ...
In ancient times, they said ...
What can we do for those who are most at risk, most vulnerable, all the time, and now, again?
Instead of answers, here may you find safety for your questions. Instead of promises, may you find community for your struggles.
Allow your soul to be nurtured. Let the waves in your mind and heart gradually subside.
ear, now, this invitation: To open yourself to surprise today and be ready to greet unexpected delights.
May the grace of the world leave a lasting imprint in you.
Each threshold offers an opportunity for change, for renewal, for transformation, from what we were and what we are to what we can be.
Let us be thankful and full of praise to be in the company of those who came before, yet are ever in our midst.
In this space of welcome and acceptance you are beloved.
We gather from every direction for another year of growth and depth; another year of learning to love this world.
Welcome to this place of peace; ...
We come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. ...
Welcome to all our siblings this morning. ...
Let us pay tribute to our movement ancestors, many of them transwomen of color who led the first rebellion that night.
Bring your rainbow socks; Bring the emptiness you feel for our siblings gone too soon.
You are beautiful; every part of you beautiful just the way you are.
We come this day, called by war ...
