Wise and Knowing God,

Through you, all things are known:
from the mysteries of the world
to the stories we share with each other,
your wisdom illuminates our world.

Through you, we learn more and more:
we study and we teach each other
so that we can all grow together
to better understand your Creation.

Through you, we find wisdom:
hidden in parable and fable,
in the experiences of our elders
and in the innocence of our children.

Wise and knowing God,
fill us with your knowledge and love
so that we may cross the earth
sharing it with each other.
