and across the country clergy and people try to focus on our primary calling, to be the Church, the Body of Christ, in our own communities.
So many words, so much passionate conviction, such fervent prayer.
And today, the prayer after the psalm at Morning Prayer (ps 133) could not have been better
"Grant to your people, good Lord,
the spirit of unity,
that they may dwell together in your love
and so bear to the world
the ointment of your healing and the dew of your blessing;through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
