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 Invocation

Be With Us and Hear Us

 Fire of the Spirit
Life of the lives of creatures
Spiral of sanctity
Bond of all natures
Glow of charity
Lights of clarity
Taste of sweetness to the fallen
Be with us and hear us

Hildegarde of Bingen, 1169 AD

I Cannot Do This Alone

O God, early in the morning I cry to you.
Help me to pray
And to concentrate my thoughts on you:
I cannot do this alone.
In me there is darkness,
But with you there is light;
I am lonely, but you do not leave me;
I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help;
I am restless, but with you there is peace.
In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience;
I do not understand your ways,
But you know the way for me…
Restore me to liberty,
And enable me to live now
That I may answer before you and before me.
Lord, whatever this day may bring,
Your name be praised.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
