Centering Thought 

I accept Time absolutely.

It alone is without flaw,

It alone rounds and completes all,

That mystic baffling wonder.

As we set aside this time for quiet, may we hear the heart-felt whisperings of our spirit, and also that of others. May those who share from their hearts today feel the power of our attention and the strength of our love. May we all feel uplifted by words of comfort, and be supported by the presence of our caring community.
