AbstractGracious and Most Merciful One, we gather today in Your presence, trusting in Your manifold blessings. Help each one here as we struggle with difficult decisions in a difficult time. Place each one of us in the center of your compassion, to be able to respond compassionately in the decisions that are made. Place each of one of us in the center of your creativity, allowing us to see with new ideas and new approaches solutions we have not seen before. Place us in the center of Your unlimited insight, where we might understand the work each committee, each legislator does in the light of Your wholeness, learning from approaches that work from many places. Lead us into Your new day, where we might learn to live simply, seeing blessing in each day, making the work of this body to aid those most in need. In the Name of Hope and Love in our world we pray. AMEN. Pledge of allegiance to the Flag.
