This short prayer encourages us to life a full life, building the community and caring for the earth, delighting in diversity.

God of all, source and goal of all community,

whose will is that all your people enjoy fullness of life;

may we be builders of community,

caring for your good earth here and worldwide,

and, as partners with one another, signs of your ever-friendly love.

May we delight in diversity and choose solidarity,

for you are in community with us,

our God, for ever and ever,

Amen.
