The Kiwanis President in Akron gets to give the invocation at the monthly Akron Roundtable meeting. It is a tricky thing to pray authentically in the midst of so many religious traditions, including none at all! President Kurt Winebrenner had an especially good one this month:

Creator of us all, as we near the end of another year, help us to strive for peace in the world and the pursuit of humanity and understanding in our dealings with other people, other communities, and other governments.

Please bless those who will be traveling to see their families and friends at this time of year and help us to provide some time for the lonely, some food for the hungry, some shelter for the homeless and some assistance to those in need.

Bless the food and the fellowship that we enjoy today and keep peace, joy, and compassion in our hearts throughout the coming year. Amen.

Akron Roundtable is held at noon on the third Thursday of every month, Akron Roundtable is a non-partisan forum.
