Beacons of Love, Hope, & Justice

   The abundant One calls to us,
“Gather as one, beloved people.”

   We gather as people beloved!

   The Creator, the Teacher, & the
      Mystery reminds,
“I am with you always.”

   We come to worship the
      God of hope, love, and grace.

The God of resurrections,
   yearns to transform us into
beacons of love, hope, & justice.

We are here to become beacons.

  May we live as people transformed
      & resurrected!
May we be God’s own hopes.

 In this hour, may we become who
      God dreams we can be. Amen.
