This winter day, God, is sunny and warmer than usual. May this House be similar. Let Your light guide the course of this place, filling up the shadows, pointing the way to community, progress, peace. May Your heat fire our passions for the right and the good.



In committees, listening and speaking, through agreement and disagreement in the halls and offices, in strategy to turn thought and ideal into reality, consecrate us. You are our foundation and the goal of all worth building. Amen.
