We pray for ourselves, we who are church:
That we humbly acknowledge the wound of abuse;
That we resurrect a community of radical love, inclusiveness and solidarity;
That we become an oasis for the weary and downtrodden;
That we explore truth from various sources and live with a creative ‘Kingdom’ tension;
That we speak a language of affirmation and compassion;
That we serve humbly as Jesus did

All of us. Amen.
