Awakening From Grief

Published by AV Coordinator on

Message by Mike Brown

The opening words are We Gather, by Pat Uribe-Lichty.

We gather—
We bring our sorrows
our disappointments
our failures.
We gather for healing,
for laughter and
to rejoice.
We gather to find
new ways of loving
new ways of thinking
new ways of being.
We gather—
Yes, always we gather,
for it is in gathering
that we find our hope.

The closing words are And Now We Take our Leave, by Barbara Cheatham.

And now we take our leave.
Before we gather here again–
may each of us bring happiness into another’s life;
may we each be surprised by the gifts that surround us;
may each of us be enlivened by constant curiosity–
And may we remain together in spirit
Til the hour we meet again.
