#1008 "When Our Heart is In a Holy Place"

by Joyce Poley


When our heart is in a holy place,

When our heart is in a holy place

We are bless'd with love and amazing grace

When our heart is in a holy place.

When we trust the wisdom in each of us

Ev'ry color ev'ry creed and kind,

And we see our faces in each other's eyes

Then our heart is in a holy place


When we tell our story from deep inside,

And we listen with a loving mind,

And we hear our voices in each other's words,

Then our heart is in a holy place.


When we share the silence of sacred space,

And the God of our Heart stirs within,

And we feel the power of each other's faith,

Then our heart is in a holy place.

First Speaker: "Sacred" by Marsha Howland

Closing Hymn

#1053 "How Could Anyone"

by Libby Roderick

How could anyone ever tell you

you were anything less than beautiful?

How could anyone ever tell you

you were less than whole?

How could anyone fail to notice

that your loving is a miracle?

How deeply you're connected to my soul.

Closing Words: "The Book of Hours: I, 59 by Rainer Maria Rilke

Extinguishing the Chalice

Closing Circle

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
