Each summer we celebrate the birth of our nation commemorating the signing of our country's Declaration of Independence. Let us add a prayer of gratitude and hope to our celebrations today.
May God bless our United States, the land we share together with so many. We hope that we keep our relationship with God in front of our efforts to promote justice and peace. May we continue to be a light to the world, a pillar of thought-filled justice, and a force for peace with each other.
In the hope of Christ's words to love one another, Amen
