Also appropriate as Meditations
Father, Mother God, here we are together—rich and poor; educated and not so well educated; gay and straight; democrats and republicans; some of us with light skin, some of us with darker; some of us walking, some of us unable to walk: none of us as whole as we would like to be—help us to know that we are all your children and we are all holy stuff. May we be a blessing to the life of anyone who enters this sanctuary—and may this church be a true sanctuary—and may those who come as strangers in turn help us grow in wisdom, in compassion, and in joy of living. Amen.
