Compassion for All including Ourselves

O Breathing Life, your Name shines everywhere!
Release a space to plant your Presence here.
Envision your “I Can” now.
Embody your desire in every light and form.
Grow through us this moment’s bread and wisdom.
Untie the knots of failure binding us,
as we release the strands we hold of others’ faults.
Help us not forget our Source,
Yet free us from not being in the Present.
From you arises every Vision, Power, and Song from gathering to gathering.
Amen.
May our future actions grow from here!

Our Children Are Our Future and Hold All Our Hopes

O God! Educate these children.
These children are the plants of Thine orchard,
the flowers of Thy meadow,
the roses of Thy garden.
Let Thy rain fall upon them;
let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love.
Let Thy breeze refresh them in order
that they may be trained, grow, and develop,
and appear in the utmost beauty.
Thou art the Giver.
Thou art the Compassionate.

—Baha’i Blessing

Coming Together—Growing Together

We light the light of a new idea.
It is the light of our coming together.
It is the light of our growing;
to know new things,
to see new beauty,
to feel new love.
– Unitarian Chalice Lighting Invocation
