Invocation and blessing offered at the October 8, 2019 meeting of the Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce by Dr. Gary Furr, Pastor, Vestavia Hills Baptist Church.
The complexity of these times overwhelm us–
too much information, too many problems,
too much acrimony and division,
too many words spoken thoughtlessly.
Grant us true simplicity
to see ourselves truthfully
to give our hearts freely
to see others lovingly
to make our decisions faithfully
to speak our words with clarity
and honesty and purpose.
