Welcome

Norm Cobb #434

May we be reminded here of our

  highest aspirations,

and inspired to bring our gifts of

  love and service to the altar of

  humanity

May we know once again that we 

  are not isolated human beings

but connected, in mystery and miracle,

  to the universe,

to this community and to each

  other.
