Our Akron Roundtable speaker was Dr. Frank Douglas President & CEO, Austin BioInnovation Institute.

Although I am a Presbyterian, and sinfully proud of it, I am fond of our brothers and sisters in the UCC (United Church of Christ). I borrowed from and gave credit to one of theirs for this months prayer, Olivia Masih White, Ph.D., a professor of genetics and a longtime member of the United Church of Christ.

Here's Dr. White's prayer:
We thank you, O God,
for the wisdom and knowledge you bestow upon scientists
who work at revealing the secrets of creation.
We stand in awe and wonder at the history of the universe
and of life on this planet.
This knowledge strengthens our faith in your creative power.
We are grateful for this wonderful creation
and for being a part of your blessing. Amen.
