-The MCC Elders

 

 

 

 

God of Diversity, Universal One,

 

All our cultures and nations are created in Your image

 

We cry out to you in languages spoken, signed, and written,

 

We cry out to you in the painted image and the sound of music,

 

And you receive it all in love.

 

 

 

Grant that we may see You in everyone around us

 

In the languages and cultures we inhabit, and in the ones we don't understand,

 

In the people we agree with, and those we disagree with or fear,

 

In the heart of every spirit on our glorious world.

 

 

 

Grant that we may learn to share You with one another

 

In word and deed, thought and action,

 

So that together we can bring about the New Realm you promised,

 

Where the lion lies down with the lamb

 

The stranger is welcomed with open arms

 

And the children live without fear.
