Unity is more than just a noun or a buzzword. We need to nurture it, feed it and give it room to grow our roots together.
I wrote this blessing 8 years ago and it was spoken at Summer Solstice. As always it can be adapted to suit whatever situation is unique to your path. My only recommendation would be to use it when the moon is from new to full.
A Blessing to Encourage Unity
On this Midsummer day of lasting light as we sit beside the sea
Let us bind our souls,
Let us bond our hearts,
Let us set our minds.
have everyone dip their hands in water passing a bowl, cloth or sprinkling the water over each participant
With this water from the sea
We ask for the gift of truth
circulate again with incense, a feather or an air symbol
With this incense which mingles with the air
We ask for the gift of honor
have everyone grasp some sand or rub their hands with it
With this sand from the strong earth
We ask for the gift of respect
at this point everyone can join hands side by side in a circle or each put one hand in to the center like when you do a cheer
As our hands are bound
So are our hearts, souls and minds
A bond of spirit
A bond of love
Empowered through truth, honor and respect.
