Let this day hold beginnings: may we begin to love and care for ourselves in deeper, more productive ways. May we begin to embrace a more intentional way of living. May we begin to celebrate our unity in our diversity, and our diversity in our unity. May we begin to make peace, anywhere and everywhere. May we begin to practice the art of listening. May we begin the process of beginning; for even if we already have good practices, each day is created anew, and each day marks a beginning. Until we begin, we cannot accomplish. Until we begin, we cannot hope. Until we begin, we cannot love. So let us begin, today. For beginnings we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
