Today's Prayer

Holy One, In this season of graduations, we participate in the rituals of accomplishment, of time, of expanding minds and experiences. We thank you for the knowledge of life-giving love-living that removes fear, dissolves walls and chains, and liberates us to recognize our oneness in you and to act in loving kindness. We… Praise the source of faith and learning that has sparked and stoked the mind With a passion for discerning how the world has been designed. Let the sense of wonder flowing from the wonders we survey Keep our faith forever growing and renew our need to pray; God of wisdom, we acknowledge that our science and our art And the breadth of human knowledge only partial truth impart. Far beyond our calculation lies a depth we cannot sound Where your purpose for creation and the pulse of life are found. May our faith redeem the blunder of believing that our thought Has displaced the grounds for wonder which the ancient prophets taught. May our learning curb the error which unthinking faith can breed Lest we justify some terror with an antiquated creed. As two currents in a river fight each other’s undertow Till converging they deliver one coherent steady flow, Blend O God, our faith and learning till they carve a single course, Till they join as one, returning praise and thanks to you, their Source. Amen. Rev. Ted Crass, President, The United Methodist Foundation of New England. Inspiration: John 17.20-26, Acts 16.25-32. Thomas H. Troeger “Praise the Source of Faith and Learning” (TFWS 2004).
