Prayer of Many Voices ............. We pray in many voices, from many faiths, in many names, and from many traditions.

We pray with heads covered, and with heads uncovered.

We pray with heads bowed, and we pray with faces raised. But in all of our diversity, we share much in our prayers.

We pray JOY, Joy in our world, Joy in our nations, Joy in our communities, Joy in our families, And joy in ourselves. Remind us of the joy that fills our lives and shapes our days, and call us to be creators and maintainers of joy for those around us.

We pray LOVE, Love in our world, Love in our nations, Love in our communities, Love in our families, And love in ourselves. We are profoundly grateful for the love we are given, and we know, humbly, that we ought to be givers of love in a world that cries out for love.

We pray PEACE, Peace in our families, Peace in our communities, Peace in our nations, Peace in our world, And peace in ourselves. Let us never speak lightly of Peace, but remind us that what divides us is far less important than what unites us.

We are grateful for this time together, for the chance to break bread together, share our experiences & express our music and the opportunity to create new paradigms.

Keep us mindful of all that we have been given, and help us always to share with those who are less fortunate than we are.

We ask this in the name of all the children of the divine. Amen (Author??........ (Courtesy of Rev. R. Clark)

Who Knew??

The haunting melody, we now know as "Taps" ... used at military funerals...........The words are .............. Day is done .. Gone the sun ... From the lakes ... From the hills, >From the sky .. All is well .. Safely rest ... God is nigh . Fading light ... Dims the sight ... And a star . Gems the sky ... Gleaming bright ... From afar . Drawing nigh .. Falls the night . Thanks and praise .. For our days ... Neath the sun .. Neath the stars...Neath the sky ... As we go ... This we know . God is nigh ...
