Loving Father, Nurturing Mother,
We ask your presence with us at this hour.
We celebrate today
our observance of New Life.
As we clear out the leavings of winter and
look ahead to the full growth of summer,
help us to focus on new opportunities.
Help us find a sprig of new growth
in our formation of ideas
and in our steps toward change.
Remind us to build on strong foundations
of love and wonder.
And be with us in our work,
which we do in your Honor.
Written to begin a meeting today March 20, First Day of Spring 2013
