What Is the Journey?
It is a journey in justice, not judgment. Its ethic is love, not law.
Its signposts neither rule nor regulate.
Its mandate is the constant heartbeat of compassion that affirms the worth
of each soul.
It is a path of inward and outward transformation.
A path where we leave behind who we once were to become who God calls
us to be.
We let go of traditions and proscriptions which give voice to some while
A path of adventure and discovery of new horizons beckons and births new
It is a journey of seeing with new eyes, hearing with new ears, and
discerning new truths.
A journey of hospitality where joy, hope, love, and peace are living words.
– Danny Belrose, “Together on the Road: A Trilogy,” part 2
Hymn of Gathering: “The Lords Prayer” Roxanne Andrighetti
Invocation: Elder Dariq Wolsey, Community of Christ
What is Prayer?: A Baha’i exploration of prayer through the art of music.
Roxanne will explore the question “What is Prayer?” from the Baha’i perspective sharing several of her original musical compositions inspired by
the Baha’i writings.
“The diversity in the human family should be the cause of love and harmony, as it is in music where many different notes blend together
in the making of a perfect chord."
Lighting the Peace Candle: Teacher Bruce Hodgins, Community of Christ
Prayer for Peace:
God of Peace,
Create in me a spirit of peace that reflects the peace I know in you. Help me
to share this peace with those I love and with those I don’t love. Open the
eyes of my heart that I may recognize your presence in everyone. I pray that
peace will be known by all through my words and my actions. Soften any
hardness in my heart that I may share the gift of your peace to all in my life.
Bless those I love and those I don’t love. Bless my journey and bless me to
always know that I am worthy of the peace that is found through you. Amen.
Closing Song “Peace, Shalam, Shalom” Emma’s Revolution and Community of
