People: Gaze upon the beauty of the Eternal One and seek the Eternal in God’s temple.

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have dishonored your name by our quarrels and dissensions. We have frequently bragged about our own denominations, at the expense of other denominations. We have guessed at the opinions and beliefs of others, without the patience to ask and to listen to them in order to understand. Too often we have stressed our differences, without any appreciation of our common faith and baptism. Forgive such pride that projects our own “wisdom” and clouds the gospel of your cross; for your own Name’s sake. Amen.
