Our Holy Triune God,
At the core of our diversity is unity,
and at the core of our discord is covenant.
As you exist — three-in-one — and are greater
because of your variety of expressions,
so too are we made stronger in our infinite variety —
of perspectives and opinions,
of experiences and expressions.
Root us now in our commitment
to create unity once again
through our covenant, with each other and with You.
Remind us that You are the Love that flows among us
as the Creator who made our vibrant diversity
as the Redeemer who reconciles us to one another
and as the Sustainer who creates community among us.
We pray in Your Holy Name. Amen.
“After all, we are created in the image of a God who is a diversity of persons, that exists in ineffable unity.”
– Desmond Tutu, An African Prayer Book
