Invocation for the YMCA of Superior California’s

Annual Meeting and Volunteer Celebration, April 29, 2015 

by Rev. Roger Jones, YMCA Advisory Board

Please join me for a few moments for reflection and intention as I offer these words of prayer.

Spirit of life-giving Love, whom we invoke by many names and call upon in varied moments of life, we call on you now to bless this meeting, this meal, and those who are sharing this time together as volunteers, donors, staffers, leaders, and loved ones.

We give thanks for being together here in this place, and for the great institution of the YMCA, which we serve and support with our generous gifts of time, talent, money and good will.

We give thanks for the volunteers and staff here with us now. We give thanks also for those absent from this event but whom we count as our YMCA colleagues and friends in pursuit of the Y’s mission to build strong children, strong families and strong communities, and to inspire lives of more joy and beauty, health and wholeness among ever-growing numbers of people.

So may it be. Amen.
