We gather in this bright mid-winter,
grateful for the blessings we have been graced with.
Enter this hour with your whole soul;
May the spirit of this time bring you to a place of rest,
where respite is hard to find;
and help you to find a place of action,
where inspiration has dwindled.
We come together as a community,
to inspire one another for the ministry of hope, of love, of dedication.
