Well that was fast:
A Prayer for The Stranger
For the Editorial Staff That Dreamed Up “A Month of Sundays:” Dear God, May we understand our motivations for publishing this article. May we find more constructive and intelligent ways to talk about religion. May we understand the impact our words have on people who are seaching and seeking and take responsibility for the power of those words.
For the Readers of “A Month of Sundays:” Dear God, May we seek out answers for ourselves by experiencing religion, if that is what we desire, firsthand, and not through the misguided lense of this article, and articles like it. May we not let cynical, unresearched articles about “the religious” be an excuse for thinking we are unwelcome and keep us outside looking in. May we experience the actual embrace of a community that contradicts the perceptions that articles like these perpetuate.
For the Few Writers Who Made A Real Attempt to Understand The Communities About Which They Wrote: Dear God, May we forgive the other writers of “A Month Of Sundays” for their irresponsible crap.
St. James Parishioner.
