Advent Day of Prayers for Peace - we begin

We have begun our Day of Prayers for Peace with Morning Prayer, and this prayer by Archbishop Desmond Tutu:

O God: Teach us to rejoice in all the things we have in common and respect each others' differences; remind us that we are all your children, and teach us to listen; we pray that people everywhere will strive to live in peace, tolerance, and respect, no matter what their faith or race — may we gain the wisdom, grace, and generosity of spirit to overcome our differences and live as one. Amen.

Desmond Tutu, from “A Prayer for Dafur.”
