God and God of our ancestors,
Let us be reminded today that we have all been created in Your image.
May we encourage each other and build one another up – in celebration of our own unique gifts.
May we be kind and compassionate to others who reflect Your image and likeness in different ways.
May we learn and be inspired by these differences.
May we truly accept each other, in our communities and in our hearts.
May it be Your will and may we all do our part.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who creates all people in Your image.
