Great Unity beyond all differences

Out of a troubled world of expediency and selfish strife, we come to this place set apart for the renewal of vision.

Great Unity beyond all differences, should our lives be narrowed by personal sorrow or tragedy, envision us with a sense of worth;

should we be weary of the diminishing purposes of community and the persistence of global conflicts, envision us with your larger purpose;

should we feel lost upon earth's lonely cosmic shore, envision us with joy and wonder.

Uphold us when weak. Embrace us when broken. Transform us when partial.

Restore to us your great unity that we and the green earth and the cosmic law may become as one.

Great Unity, bless us now, in this moment of worship, with your commanding vision. Amen.
