“God of friends, God of enemies;
perhaps the great act of faith these days is not the belief in you, but a belief that you are present in the people we want to turn away.
Help us discover that there is always more to love when we see others as you do;
there are differences not just to tolerate, but to celebrate.
As you have remained with us and for us despite all we have done to withdraw, may we remain with and for others,
judging not as you could judge, but loving more than we deserve.”
