Great Light, we give thanks today for the breath in our lungs, the sun in our sky, and the fire in our souls. You have kindled in us purpose and courage, and from it we offer you our gratitude and service. Teach us to walk your path, guard our way as we go, and make us bold in our passion for you and the life you have given us.
Though we will weather storms, though night will inevitably fall, and shadows close around us, we will hear your bell in the night, your voice on the wind, and see your beacon through the darkness. Keep us close to you as you move through the world and through us, and be close to us wherever we go. Make us instruments of your light and love and vessels for your peace, this day, and always.
Amen and namaste.
We also wish a fond happy birthday to one of our founders, Elanor.
