A Miscellany 61
Agnostic Blessing Suggestion

I thought I would pass along a "blessing" that agnostics can use when appropriate. It came to mind when I was reading some of the "prayers" for agnostics on the web site. The suggested blessing is a poem by Lucille Clifton called "Blessing the Boats."[1] It has several layers of meaning, but I would be quite comfortable using it as an agnostic / secular blessing.
