As we gather together, we remember that we are not alone in our faith:
God is our Companion.
Though the Way is not easy, and we may suffer in righteousness,
God is our Comfort.
When anger fills our hearts, and grief crushes our spirits,
God is our Counselor.
And through it all, we are together:
For we are all children of God, our Companion, our Comfort, and our Counselor. Amen.
