Akron Roundtable Prayer 
Thursday, November 18, 2010, 09:00 AM - Prayers
Our Akron Roundtable speaker was Tina Tchen, Executive Director of the White House Council on Women and Girls, which was created by President Obama in March 2009 to ensure that all parts of the federal government are addressing the needs of women and girls.

Here's the prayer I offered:

Creator of women and men,
women hold up half the sky.
May the world nurture girls
and support women
so they will lift us all higher.

Bless our time together here
so we may bless others
when we return to
home, school, work and community.

Amen.
