One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:


Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Gracious and loving God, by Your wisdom, You have bound us together in a common life, as one body. The eye cannot say to the hand: "I have no need of you," nor, again, the head to the feet: "I have no need of you." Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many, and all parts must work together for the common good.
 
As these Your servants gather today, help them embrace both the gifts and disciplines of a shared common life. Guide them toward decisions that honor all members of our human family, especially the most vulnerable. Give them a reverence for the Earth and all its inhabitants.
 
Strengthen them to act with mercy and kindness in all that they do, and give all of us grace to walk with You and one another in the way of love.
 
In Your holy name we pray.  Amen.
