Act of Awareness
As we gather in this virtual service,
we pause again to reflect, to feel, and to commit
to thoughtful and mindful intention.
We wonder once more about the ebb and flow
of this living, breathing, expanding universe …
and of our community.
We give our attention right now
to each other,
to fresh beginnings,
to this time,
to this season.
We celebrate this Spring day,
and the new challenges and possibilities it brings.
Nature in our world is beginning to bloom again.
May this time spent in sacred space, empower us
to once again be open-eyed and open-sensed
to the beauty and the oneness
of all people and things.
Into this day will break moments of awareness,
tiny shards of light that illumine
the reality of existence.
May we be blessed by their gift!
Hymn - Let all creation dance
Let all creation dance
God’s breath each force unfurls,
Our own amazing earth,
Life heart and soul and voice:
Brian Arthur Wren (1991)
