Let’s gather to ask God’s blessing on our new spaces.
Loving God, be close to those who dwell in this room.
May its walls be a reminder of the strength and shelter you offer to your people. May they remain strong to provide sanctuary and peace to all who enter.
May its windows invite us to look out into the world and seek ways to serve. May they remain clear and bright, undimmed by anxiety or despair.
May its door be a reminder that you stand waiting at the door of our hearts and may it always remain open in hospitality to the stranger and the outcast.
May the fullness of peace and joy embrace all who come here. May good conversation, willing collaboration, hearty laughter and love of you rest on all who enter this space. Amen.
