Each year we begin the church year anew by bringing water that represents important places or events in our lives. Those who travel in the summer months bring little vials from places they visit. Those who stay put bring water from their taps. We each pour these waters into one large bowl to mingle. Many drops forming the water of community. These are soul waters; not the waters of a travelogue. Bring or collect the waters of your hearts, spirits, and souls.
