Invocation – Denise Dittmar
This is another day we have been given.
This is indeed a sacred day. 
Let us be grateful for the capacity to sense, feel, and understand.
Let us be grateful for the incredible gift of life,
And let us be especially grateful for
the ties of love which bind us together
Giving dignity, meaning, worth and joy to all of our days.

This congregation is dedicated to the proposition

in spite of time and death and the space between the stars.
We pause now in silent witness to that unity.
by David Bumbaugh
