Blessing for a Church
by James Dillet Freeman
This is God’s house.
May we who come here not only find out about God, but find God.
May there be beauty in this place, but especially may it be a place where men and women become aware of the beauty in themselves.
May this be a place of worship. May this be a place of instruction. May this be a place of singing. May this be a place of prayer.
But for us who worship and take instruction and sing and pray, may this always be a place of inner stillness, where we may listen and hear when God speaks.
May whoever ministers here ministers in love. May whoever teaches here teach truth. May whoever serves here serve pleasantly.
May everyone come into this house in expectation and go with thanksgiving, and may anyone who comes needing help go feeling blest.
May this be such a house that Jesus Christ – or any stranger, even one of the least – would feel in it that they were with friends. Amen.
