Allow the ringing to continue until the congregation settles down. Please do not begin before the congregation is quiet. *CALL TO COMMUNITY Welcome to this time devoted to mind and spirit. Avoid saying good morning until you introduce yourself later. Whether youre joining us today for the first time, or youve been a member for a long time you are welcome here. Whatever the faith you have known, if any, or whatever your heritage, you are welcome here. Whoever you are and whomever you love, you are welcome here. However you arrive at this beloved place, you are welcome here. Let us journey together. *GREETING: ( Gloria Fitzgibbon) Cheerfully state: Good morning.

Then state your name and briefly describe your relationship with the fellowship such as: length of membership, committee activities etc. * WELCOME VISITORS: At this time I would like to welcome any visitors joining us today. 1) If you are comfortable doing so, please stand, introduce yourself, and tell us where youre from. [RECOGNIZE EACH VISITOR AND GUEST.] 2) We encourage visitors to sign the guest book in the foyer in order to receive the monthly newsletter. 3) You are invited to stay for coffee after the service.

Here in brief are some things coming up soon. Details about each event are on our website and on the bulletin board in the lobby. A few hard copies will be available at the door after the service. Read only the announcements that have been provided and emphasize only the what, when and who to contact. * INTERLUDE: We come from the fragmented world into this place of restoration and wholeness. Let us turn inward, listen to the mornings interlude, and create a space of spiritual readiness within ourselves. (I have a pre-recorded piece of music Id like to use for this Round and Round by Libana, its 2:15 long) *CHALICE LIGHTING: Read the words for the chalice lighting while the minister (or guest speaker) lights the chalice.

The perfect way is only difficult for those who pick and choose; Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear. Make a hairbreadth difference, and Heaven and Earth are set apart; If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against it. The struggle between for and against is the minds worst disease.

*INTRODUCTION OF THE SPEAKER Joshua Bailey, President of Path Of The Moon Collective and a founding member will say a short piece about POTMC, who we are, how we started, and hell introduce me and the other members from POTMC. *SERMON Calling of the quarters North: Audrey Owens, East: Jean Rockford Aguilar-Valdez, South: Tiffany Channey, West: Cat Cox-Carter Shedding the past, growing the future Peggie Kaan

*WORDS OF OFFERING Each Sunday: Please join me in reading the words of offering printed in your order of service. [LEAD THE READING]

May the gifts we bring build a community of peace and harmony, and may we be an example of peace for the whole world.

*OFFERTORY MUSIC (I have a pre-recorded piece, Celtic Wedding, by Al Pettiway and Amy White that Id like to use here)

* JOYS AND CONCERNS ( To be done by Gloria Fitzgibbon) We are a community that cares for one another by listening to each others joys and concerns. On behalf of the Fellowship, the Care Committee responds to many of these expressions of joy and concern. I ask them to stand. [WAIT FOR INDIVIDUALS TO STAND] If you know of someone who would appreciate hearing from the Care Committee, or is in need of assistance, please speak with one of the committee members after the service. [NOD FOR COMMITTEE MEMBERS TO SIT] If you wish to speak publicly, please come forward, state your name, and say a sentence or two about your joy or concern. LIGHT ONE OF THE CANDLES. Service leader will move down to stand next to folks as they come to the microphone. Please adjust mike as necessary for folks. *REMEMBERING U.S. SERVICE PERSONNEL And now Jamie Stevens will read our soldier memorial.

We name these Americans who have died, yet we remember all soldiers and civilians on every side who have been impacted by the tragedy of war. Let us remember them as we offer thanks and hope for our own joys and concerns, both spoken and unspoken. LIGHT SECOND CANDLE. Let us hold them in a community of silent meditation. *MEDITATION Allow about 1 minute.
