Invocation
2011-
with James Prevett
Psalm for ceremony, mace

An inauguration ceremony for the beginning of any event.

The building is vacated and closed. A short speech is made to attendees outside the front entrance. Using a ceremonial mace, the front door is knocked three times, then opened.

Afterward, the mace is displayed inside the entrance until the event concludes.

Psalm for ceremony
Oh

Make us strong
validate our undertakings
and give us
wealth of mind

For that is all
which we
can hope

*knock three times with mace*
