Brothers, sisters,Let's pause for a moment and give in to gratitude.
For the air, the water, and the soil
That have birthed the food that now sits radiant before us.
May it nourish us.
When we look at each other,
We see joy, love, communion.
Let's give thanks for that.
May all beings on this globe
Have such gratitude, joy, love, and communion
As we have now.
Friends, let's make that happen.
So be it; let's eat.
