Reading – quote from Welcome to Nightvale by Joseph Fink & Jeffery Cranor

“All of their imperfections and faults which made them individuals worth loving.  They had built those faults into the usual messy, comfortable, patched-up, beautiful structure that any functioning long term relationship ended up being.”

Reading – quote from Children of Dune by Frank Herbert

The future remains uncertain and so it should, for it is the canvas upon which we paint our desires. Thus always the human condition faces a beautifully empty canvas. We possess only this moment in which to dedicate ourselves continuously to the sacred presence which we share and create.

This would work well for those doing a unity painting as part of their ceremony.

Reading – “We Are One” from Babylon 5

The universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice.
It speaks in the language of hope.
It speaks in the language of trust.
It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion.
It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul.
But always it is the same voice.

It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us.
And the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born.
It is the small, still voice that says we are One.

No matter the blood, no matter the skin,
No matter the world, no matter the star,
We are One.

No matter the pain, no matter the darkness,
No matter the loss, no matter the fear.
We are One.

Here, gathered together in common cause
We agree to recognize this singular truth and this singular rule:
That we must be kind to one another.
Because each voice enriches us and ennobles us,
And each voice lost diminishes us.

We are the voice of the universe,
the soul of creation,
The fire that will light the way to a better future.
We are One.
