Jesus, though you were of one age, you spoke to the ages.
Jesus, though you lived long ago, you spoke words that continue to move, motivate, mature, and transfigured us.
Jesus, though you were of Palestinian color and culture, you spoke to all cultures and colors.
We thank you for your timeliness and timelessness. May the church that bears your name continue to reach out with love and compassion toward other members of the human family, no matter what age, culture, color, or context.
