LIGHT A CANDLE

We invite you to light a candle, still your mind and heart,

allow to arise your concerns or those for whom you are concerned.

Breathe, name them, place them here. Trust them to be held and heard.

Know yourself sustained. Be strengthened.

Play the video and read the names below, then send us the names of your beloved ones

so we can light a virtual candle for them and add those names to our prayer list.
