open our eyes to what is important
and close our eyes to what is not.
Help us forget plush seats, soft carpet, painted walls.
Bring us together,
not because of calendar and clock,
but because we seek understanding
and because we ask healing.
Make these auditoriums
simple shores beside calm seas.
Help us, Father-Mother Love,
to see humble boats,
and in them all one Comforter,
open our hearts to the Christ.
