Invocation & Benediction

I hope that this day’s dawning
finds you safe and warm,
ready for the forming of faith, hope and love.

I hope that the morning greets you
fair and bright,
rested by the night and guided by the Light.

May your steps be in sync
with the leading of Comforting Presence
in a perpetual seeking of grace and good.

May the touch of your smile
and the warmth of your hand
be a ready witness of the love that lives within you.

When the shadows have grown long,
may the coming dusk find that you have already
loosened the husk of any insult, any wrong, any injury,

and tossed it aside to wilt and shrivel
along with all the drivel of slight.
May all of that be forgotten in the night

that the morrow’s dawning
may find you safe and warm,
and further shaped by the forming of faith, hope and love.
