Introductory Note:

As the Renovaré Team prepares to “go dark” for a week in celebration of such holidays as Canada Day and Independence Day, we leave you with a short prayer from the Book of Common Prayer. Whether your nation is marking a birthday this coming week or not, may we all serve the Lord in freedom and peace.

Renovaré Team

Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peo­ples of the earth for your glo­ry, to serve you in free­dom and in peace: Give to the peo­ple of our coun­try a zeal for jus­tice and the strength of for­bear­ance, that we may use our lib­er­ty in accor­dance with your gra­cious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spir­it, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
