Invocation: Spring

While we wait

and wait

and wait

impatiently for the weather to turn,

let us think spring thoughts.

Let us think about our President-Elect preparing to take the reins of our club.

Let us think about our club goals and the role each of us plays to make the world

a better place through our involvement in Rotary.

Let us think about opportunities to serve in new ways.

Let us be thankful for the food and the friends around this table.

Let us be thankful that spring will come

eventually.

  1. Thank you Shawn,

    Sorry to say my club doesn’t do invocations anymore.

    It is beautiful and I shall enjoy it and add it to my collection.

    Thank you again

    • I think some people have difficult with the idea of ‘non-sectarian’ invocations, which is why I created this site, to provide many options. Does your club do a ‘thought for the day’ or something similar?

  2. Thank you for this…. I plan to use it at next week’s Rotary meeting…. with attribution to you.

  3. Hello Shawn,
    I used your “Spring” invocation at our Rotary Club today, with a brief intro to you and your interests. It was well received and very appropriate as we are impatiently waiting for the rains to end and the sun to shine once again.

    Thanks,
    Bud Thurston
    Past President
    Downtown Rotary Club

  4. I plan to use your ‘Spring’ invocation at our meeting on May 23, 2017. I’ve used yours in the past and will again. Thank you. Acting President Lori Macala, Rotary Club of Williams Lake Daybreak, Williams Lake, BC

  5. Thank you for “Spring”. We adapted it because we are desperately waiting for Rain rather than Spring. Heather Howard, Secretary, Rotary Port Alfred, Eastern Cape,South Africa D9370.
