We gather in the name of the Maker;
Who lit up the world and breathed the breath of life into us.
We gather in the name of the Son;
Who saved the world and stretched out his hand to us.
We gather in the name of the Spirit;
Who encompasses the world and blesses our souls with yearning.
We gather in the name of the Trinity of love;
God above us, God beside us, God beneath us; the beginning, the end, the everlasting one.
