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.
