Thoughts, emotions, barely formed into images or words overflow from our experiences into the world around us. In this space, a mixture of words, images, and videos seek to express the depth of living.

Prayer for Moving Forward
May my path be a goodness in the world.
One foot in front of the other, I move forward.
One decision at a time, my life changes and reforms.
One day, gives way to night, and then a new day.
their is great power in One.
One person can speak for many.
One voice of truth, can change the future.
One action, taken with conviction, can change reality.
I am One, who is moving forward.
May my path be blessed, as I walk into the future.
May my footsteps be of benefit to others.
I am One, May my journey be joyous.

A Coming Out Prayer
O God of truth and justice, the evasions and deceits we practice upon others and ourselves are many.
We long only to speak out and to hear the truth, yet time and again, from fear of loss or hope of gain, from dull habit or from cruel deliberation, we speak half-truths, we twist facts, we are silent when others lie, and we lie to ourselves.
Whether we are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning, family or friends, we sometimes feel forced to pretend to be that which we are not, to present ourselves in ways which are not truthful, and sometimes with outright lies.
But as we stand before You, our words and our thoughts speed to One who knows them before we utter them. We do not have to tell untruths to You as we are often forced to do in the world. We know we cannot lie in your presence.
May our worship help us to practice truth in speech and in thought before You, to ourselves, and before one another; and may we finally complete our liberation so that we no longer feel the need to practice evasions and deceits.
