Teach us, O Lord, to attempt what we fear we cannot attain, to ascend what we fear we cannot reach and to express what we fear we cannot utter. In adoring you whom we cannot comprehend, teach us to celebrate the faith we cannot prove; for your own love's sake. Amen.

Hilary of Poitiers (315-367)


Warm, loving Spirit of God;
open our ears, that we may listen in order to understand, not simply to reply;
open our minds, that we may receive new insights into the nature of your love;
and open our hearts, that we may share generously the gifts of your grace.
Thus will we truly be disciples of Jesus Christ, and know the truth,
the truth that will set us free. Amen.

Sheryl Anderson, Liverpool District Chair
