The Question Box

Questions clarify for us our understanding, lead us to think, and can reveal for us pathways for further inquiry. Asking questions is a spiritual practice that asks us to be vulnerable by admitting we don’t have all the answers as we engage in our free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This Sunday, Rev. Meghann is taking your questions from our virtual pulpit.

Coordinator: Odell Havsdotter

Unison Words

Spirit of Life, help us to sense that beneath us is the strength we need to keep us grounded. Help us to feel that behind us is the protection we need to feel safe facing our fears. Help us to know that before us lies the beauty we seek to feel astounded. Help us become aware of the vastness of our sky and of our spirit, and help us to know that within our hearts lies the love we need to complete the circle of connection in our lives. May we use all of our gifts to bring Love into this hurting world; this world which we so value, which we cherish.
