Gathered Here

Some people meet in churches
And synagogues and mosques;
They gather all together
To praise and worship God.

Still others meet on hillsides
In storefronts or in tents;
They share their adoration
For God who gives them breath.

Religion and community
Have been so linked, so long
That people who do not subscribe
Are often seen as wrong…

Still, people sit down quietly
Or make a joyful sound
To bring their own awareness to
The God-within they found.

No matter where you gather;
As one or many more,
Remember that the Spirit
Of Everything, is Yours!
