Upcoming Events

This fall we will focus on the theme of Moral Compass. In conversation with thought leaders from across disciplines we will ask “how do we act faithfully in a complex world?” Be sure to mark your calendars for the events coming up as a part of this series!

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
