Go in peace.

Make peace with change that is constant.

Be at peace with the cost of this Way—

for to choose another would be costlier.


When you have questions, walk in faith.

When the path is stony, walk in the footsteps of others.

When the hill’s too steep, go slowly, be at ease.


And may the evolving, enabling, inspiring God

of our forebears and contemporaries

hold the map and enlighten your way

this day and always—
