This is the bonding of the community, and those who are pulled towards our shores.
A moment when the weight of the world, cupped in our hearts, can be fluidly poured into candles before us
and in that moment allows us to just be sisters and brothers in Christ and in Faith
in laughter and in joy
We open our souls to those who have been pulled, whom the Creator has whispered
who have been drawn to where we are, to explore exactly what this is.
Thankful that our Seminary Sampler guests joined in fellowship with us.

Technology seems to always be at our fingertips, even when we strive to pass the peace, connecting hands
Never more so did we cling to technology this week as we awaited the call to answer the question..
We remain vigilant and vigil as one by one we receive the call,
yet not fully exhaling until all of us receive the call
We remain hopeful; there is a reason why we are here,
as these tealights shine softly in this sacred space
so too, we pray that our voices which are lifted up for those whose voices are not heard
beginning to transform this place
one person at a time.
