      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;
