MCC’s executive director, Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin, was honored to attend inaugural activities and join with religious leaders at the Fifty-Seventh Inaugural Prayer Service. May the first verse of that service’s opening hymn be your morning prayer this week:

For the healing of the nations, God, we pray with one accord;
For a just and equal sharing of the things that earth affords;
To a life of love in action help us rise and pledge our word,
Help us rise and pledge our word.

You can watch the service here.
