“We held chapel that night, Sunday, in the big room with the lamb and the two old iron candlesticks saved from the fire, and flowers. I can remember writing words at the office desk and asking Sabina, sheet by sheet, if it was all right. Since she had tears in her eyes, I decided that perhaps it might do. (Stephen Chapin, ’69 played for us. We had no hymnbooks.) We opened with The Vesper Hymn (“I gaze into the world…”). Then the following prayer:
May the events which seek me come unto me
May I receive them with a quiet mind
Through the Father’s ground of peace on which we walk.
May the people who seek me come unto me.
May I receive them with an understanding heart
Through Christ’s stream of love in which we live.
May the spirits who seek me come unto me.
May I receive them with a clear soul
Through the spirit’s light by which we see.
We sang the Lords’ Prayer and Thomson’s Alleluia.
