Words of Welcome & Chalice Lighting
This chalice is a beacon for the beloved community we are building. / May this be a time of strengthening.
Prayer for a Friend Preparing for Surgery
We are with you right now as you prepare for the hospital / Our image is that as each of us adds our hearts’ love for you, we surround you with a white donut of light / that gets thicker with each wish, with each prayer.
You are that. You are that light. / Truly you are a divine spark, / And at your core you have a spiritual kernel, /A light that is forever yours and forever blazing.
From the Sermon: You are Real to Me
