We do one of the Buddhist tradition
This food is a gift from the whole universe, the earth, the sky and much
hard work.  May we live in a way that is worthy of this gift.
 there are others (Buddhist)

our children say:

we love our bread
we love our butter
and most of all, we love each other...
and I don't know where that originated from.

Subject: [C-L]_ openings before meals

Here at CoHo Cohousing in Corvallis, Oregon, we are
busy building and getting ready to move in come
September. It's an exciting time for us as both the
buildings and the community get built. 
As we plan our meal program, we are thinking about the
importance of some kind of opening or ritual before
our meals. I'm thinking that it should be something to
set the meal time apart from the rest of the day and
make it special without being too "religious" for our
diverse group. Any suggestions?
We're also nearing the end of marketing our units with
2 out of 34 units left. There is still an opportunity
to join us here in the beautiful Willamette Valley but
we expect to be full very soon, so it you're thinking
of a move to the northwest check us out soon at
