Holy, holy, holy Lord, adored in the highest heaven, dwelling in the humble heart, whither can we go from thy spirit, whither can we flee from thy presence! Daily thy hand leads us, daily thy bounty feeds us, daily thy light, liberty and law shine within us: give us grace daily to rejoice in thy goodness with thanksgiving and to follow thy law faithfully.

Fellowship in Religion is to bring the brotherhood of man into religion, so that the bond of humanity is put above that of creed or church or any other thing.

1. Say not, I will love the wise and hate the unwise ; thou shalt love all mankind.
[Talmud.] Religions are many and different; but reason is one. We are all brethren.
