Shabbat Table

There is a stillness where perspective lies,
where life and love are tapped,
and ancient scrolls unrolled.

See, the herald flame proclaims anew
the healing safety of this day,
and bids the Chosen learn.

Come, share the bread and wine,
the light, the warmth, the peace,
and be at One.

Here gather strength,
to pray the Havdalah.
