Transform our Stumbling Blocks into Stepping Stones

Great Creator

Master Builder

You gift us with bricks and mortar.

Bricks and mortar

We’ve used to construct

Mighty fortresses–

Fortresses of honor

Fortresses of protection

Fortresses that seek to keep

Our beloved community safe

From the tides and tumult of our world.

Great Creator

Remind us that walls not only keep people in,

They can also keep people out.

When our walls

Become stumbling blocks

Transform them

Into stepping stones

Stepping stones

So that we may better follow you

Stepping stones

So that we may find our way

To those hungry to be fed at your table

Great Creator give us the courage

To construct our lives

In answer to your call

Give us the courage

To craft our community

to proudly proclaim

and truly live our desire

to be a home a home for all.
