Building Bridges

11/9/2004 - 5:00 AM PST


By Michael Galloway

This morning I just wanted to offer all people of Faith a prayer. Sometimes all we need is just a simple little prayer...

if I ever 'build walls',
cutting people off
or isolating myself
from the needs of others,
alert me to what I am doing.

Open my eyes
to see what unites people
rather than what divides us.

Show me
how to be inclusive
and 'build bridges' between people
instead of being exclusive
and putting up walls that divide.
