We perform this ceremony to promote the universal consciousness of Life, which acknowledges that all peoples and all faiths, all sentient beings, come from the One Great Universal Presence, which we call Spirit.  Fundamental to this truth is the unifying nature of all religious thought and experience, which we honor here today.
