Winterfest: 2022

Published by AV Coordinator on

May We Hear the Melody of Life,” by Joseph Cleveland.

May we hear the melody of Life and find ourselves singing harmony.
May we be open to the dissonances in the Song of the Land and Its People,
that we might be part of the World’s urging toward Justice, Peace, and Love.
May we feel in our bones the rhythms of Life and the Land,
and find ourselves dancing.

In the words of Maureen Killoran:

As we listen to the blessing of music,
May we know this ending
As more than a time of goodbye.
May the warmth of this community
and the memory of our chalice flame
sustain our hearts and encourage our minds,
as we engage the blessings
of life’s challenges and joys.
