We have been shattered into pieces
divisive patter has demeaned us
Let’s commit to redeem peace around us.
In this room
In this city,
Let our faith bloom in the gritty places
Among all creeds and races.
Let our Rotary service
shine to all who observe us.

Invocation for the new year 2013 December 27, 2012
Tags: beginning, invocation, rotary. henry ford
Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. ”
As we come together each week in 2013,
What makes a beginning is spinning us onward
We keep together progressing through weather
We work without rest until success.
What keeps us together is unity, fun, and focus. Let’s change the world this year.
