May the presence and the power of the spirit
surround, support, and guide us and keep us safe.
May we remember the deep love we have for each other.
May we greet out emerging differences with tenderness and tolerance.
May we call upon our courage to speak our truth,
and reveal back to others without blaming or shaming.
May we hear the truth others speak with compassion.
May we have the patience with their progress and emergence.
May we pause, breathe, and let ourselves settle.
May we stand in love and strength together.
May our rough edges be doorways to healing.
