“Christ has called us to new visions
Here to celebrate and praise,
Here confess our old divisions,
Here our peace petitions raise.
Come repentant, come forgiving,
Come in joy and hope and prayer.
Christ, once crucified, now living,
Bids us faith and love to share.”
—Jane Parker Huber (b. 1926)
“Thus one can observe that those who proclaim piety as their goal and purpose usually turn into hypocrites.”
