May we come into this building hallowed
May we come into this building hallowed by generations of thoughtful worship. May we come into the company of this congregation, enlightened by reason and moved by concern. May we come with open minds and warm hearts.
May we here cultivate a confidence that human intelligence and human affection can temper and ultimately overcome cruel circumstance and misguided malice, with faith in the power of good over evil.
So may we find both our social responsibilities and our individual salvation.
