Loving God, what is it that you would have me do?
It is not what I want you to do,
It is what I want you to be
Be a Child of God
Be my light in the world
Be my presence among my people Be kind and just
Be loving and generous Be joy-filled
Be courageous and visionary
Seeing things as they could be, rather than the way they are Be fearless and trusting
Be a witness
As we gather together, let us be mindful of the Grace found in God's presence in ourselves and in one another.
May we each be blessed beyond anything we ever imagined possible. Amen
