We thank every being that brought this food to our table. We are all a part of the web of life.

Thanks for what we receive! With joy, may we give far more than we receive and bless the world.

A Pagan Grace

We give thanks to Mother Nature,
The source of all nourishment.
We give thanks to the people who work hard,
So that food can come to our table.
We give thanks to the plants and the animals
Who die so that we may live.

Pantheist Grace

We place a small vase of fresh flowers (a token of Nature's beauty) on the dinner table. We light a candle (a symbol of warmth and lasting life). We sit around the table and hold hands (an act of love, sharing, and closeness). Then, for a few moments, we engage in a silent grace (quietly giving thanks and treasuring life, each in our own way). After 15 or 20 seconds, we release hands and dive into dinner.
