My Visit to the United Church of Christ...

This morning we went to a Congregational United Church of Christ.  I really liked it (maybe enough to give up on my pursuit of becoming an Episcopalian).  We recited this Prayer of Confession in unison:
Eternal God, whose image lies in the hearts of all people, we live among peoples whose ways are different from ours, whose faiths are foreign to us, whose tongues are unintelligible to us.  Universal God, help us to remember that you love all people with your great love, that all religion is an attempt to respond to you, that we are brothers and sisters with all humanity.  Revealing God, help us to recognize you in the convictions of truth, in the expressions of beauty, in the actions of love which surrounds us.  All this we pray in the name of Jesus Christ who is a stranger to no one land more than to another, and who is present to every land no less than another.  Amen.
Beautiful, eh?
