~Scripture Sentence~

Your Father in heaven makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good,

and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

(Matthew 5.45, Luke 6.36)



Hidden God,

whose wisdom compels our love

and unsettles all our values:

fill us with desire to search for her truth,

that we may transform the world,

becoming fools for her sake,

through Jesus Christ,

your Word and Wisdom made flesh,

to whom be glory for ever.
