Before beginning, take some time to center yourself.
Holy One, one God in three persons, as you are one, make your children one. Tear down the walls we have put up between ourselves, whether they be constructed of racism, prejudice, denominational or religious differences, gender stereotypes… May we love one another as you love us and live our lives in the incredible freedom with which you have blessed us – the freedom that enables us to break free of the fears and insecurities we have that keep us from loving generously. In the name of the Triune God we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each petition.
