Here, Gathered

Holy One,

We are here, gathered.
We now turn our hearts & minds
toward you in this place.

We turn toward you who abides with us in every place,
We turn toward you,
the divine one,
who never abandons. 

In the midst of the storms,
we search for you,
sometimes fearing because
we do not see clearly.

Make yourself known to us,
remind us “Don’t be afraid!”
Open our whole beings
that we perceive your presence.
For you are the one who journeys with us always & forever, through every joy & hardship.

Amen.                                        TG
