Let us gather together today in friendship, community, and love. Let us feel the presence of each other. May our defenses drop and our authentic faces become known. May we enjoy the fruit of creativity and color. Let us break bread and feed each other, not only for physical sustenance, but also to nourish our souls. May we laugh long and loud. May we reflect on deeper meaning. May we shed tears of mutual recognition. May we Be together. For the gathering of the tribe, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
