Convocation Prayer - Richard R. Crocker

Opening Convocation
Dartmouth College
September 21, 2011
Richard R. Crocker, College Chaplain

God of all hope and truth:

In a world where there is much suffering, we need compassion.

In a world where there is much fear, we need courage.

In a world full of false promises and easy answers, we need the challenge of clear thinking.

Grant, O God, that we, gathered in this place dedicated to the pursuit of truth, may find and cultivate these gifts --- compassion, courage, and the challenge of clear thinking – in our common life.
