A prayer by one of our members, Terry Chapman for the gathering of nations in Copenhagen...
The nations have sunk in the pit that they made;
in the net that they hid has their own foot been caught.
May the Congregation of 192 nations gathered around the Danish table
- a board groaning under the weight of illusive abundance,
weakened by the loosening screws of imperialistic powers,
adorned with the laced cloth of preservation and greed
that has fallen down around their feet,
now fully entangled ready to trip them and all the world
into an intractable pit
- find the courage and the will
to get up from the table
disentangle us from the net of blind inertia
and lead us out onto what remains of the day.
