We have entered a sacred place on this holy day
expecting God to reveal himself to us in a fresh
and marvelous way.
We bring the fragility of our lives and ask for healing.
We bring our shortcomings and our failures
and ask for forgiveness.
We bring our strengths and weaknesses
and ask for blessing.
We come committing our minds,
to the indwelling of God’s spirit.
We yield ourselves to the sacred intention
of this hour.
As we gaze upward at the octagonal lights of this sanctuary,
we desire the fullness of the light
we know to be God
to shine upon us,
to shine through us
illuminating the worlds in which we live.
And now at the chiming of the hour, we give ourselves
wholly and completely to the worship of the one
who gives us life,who gives us being.
