For the expanding grandeur of Creation,
worlds known and unknown,
galaxies beyond galaxies,
filling us with awe and challenging our imaginations:
We give thanks this day.
For this fragile planet earth,
its times and tides, its sunsets and seasons:
For the joy of human life,
its wonders and surprises, its hopes and achievements:
For our human community,
our common past and future hope,
our oneness transcending all separation,
our capacity to work for peace and justice in the midst of hostility and oppression:
For high hopes and noble causes, for faith without fanaticism,
for understanding of views not shared:
For all who have labored and suffered for a fairer world,
who have lived so that others might live in dignity and freedom:
For human liberty and sacred rites;
for opportunities to change and grow, to affirm and choose:
We pray that we may live not by our fears but by our hopes,
not by our words but by our deeds.
