May the gifts and the givers be ways
your love and hope is spread. Amen.

The Spirit of God inspires…
     Let us listen!

The Spirit of God transforms…

    Let us grow!

The Spirit of God empowers…

     Let us go…and be…and do!

And may you… those you encounter…
and those who are touched beyond that encounter…
discover and know the grace, love, and peace of God
each and every day. Amen.
