"At the Rue du Bac", Sunday, October 30, 2011 (Call to Worship)

The beauty is just beneath the surface;
the place of peace just off the main street.
And it takes just an inkling—
a moment spent in prayer;
the splendor of a work of art;
the glory of a life well-lived—
to remind us that they’re there.

Imagine what we could do—
Who we could be—
If we let that living fire of Love--
of Charity—engulf us endlessly.

Half asleep, yet we are already
half way to God; imagine if we awoke
and understood within ourselves
the Joy—the full, heart-pounding Joy—
of being alive! Imagine what
blessed apparitions we could then see.
Imagine the sacred miracles we could then be.

Rue du Bac, Paris
