This Fourth of July, it's no secret that our nation and our world are fragmented. Yet, as we face a multitude of issues ranging from environmental harm to travel bans, July 4th is a time to also reflect on truth, nobility, justice, loveliness, purity, and excellence. After all, those elements do exist; they even stand as emblems of our home country, the United States.
Before (or after!) you gather around the grill and marvel at fireworks, we invite you to join us in saying the prayer below for our nation and our world. May all of humankind grow in peace, justice, and truth!
