Inaugural 2006-2009 Integrity Board Meeting

Prayers invited for the members of the National Board of Integrity who are gathering "as we speak" for the inaugural meeting of the 2006-2009 triennium in Pasadena, CA.

Keep us in your prayers as we continue to work to realize the dream of a church where there truly "are no outcasts" -- to make "full and equal claim" not just a resolution but a reality!

Gracious God, we pray for your holy catholic Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of Jesus Christ your Son our Savior. Amen.

Just curious.

The version in the Prayer Book (p 816) is: "Gracious Father, we pray for thy holy Catholic Church . . ."

Why change it to "God" and "catholic"?


Because I exercise a preferential option for inclusive language and because I'm a "small c" catholic.
