Lord of all creation, we stand in awe before You, impelled by visions
of the harmony of man. We are children of many traditions - inheritors
of shared wisdom and tragic misunderstanding, of proud hopes and humble
successes. Now it is time for us to meet - in memory and truth, in courage
and trust, in love and promise. In that which we share, let us see the
common prayer of humanity; in that in which we differ, let us wonder at
the freedom of man; in our unity and our differences, let us know the uniqueness
that is God. May our courage match our convictions, and our integrity match
our hope. May our faith in You bring us closer to each other. May our meetings
with past and present bring blessings for the future. Amen.
