invocation for District Conference

There is power in numbers.

The energy vibrating in this room

ensures we’re unencumbered

when we presume

to change to world. Look around

We’ve gathered in this place

to celebrate, to be astounded,

at the good that can be traced

to Rotarians in each city and town

in our district.

Let us be thankful for this.

Let us be grateful as we break down

dissension and fear.

Let us be thankful, Rotarians, to be here.
