A Collect to Be Gracious to One Another

Loving Lord, who has welcomed us into your kingdom as beloved citizens, help us to be gracious to those with whom we disagree, that we would build one another up and accept one another as you have accepted us in all our weaknesses, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Some believe in eating anything, while the weak eat only vegetables. Those who eat must not despise those who abstain, and those who abstain must not pass judgment on those who eat; for God has welcomed them.’ – Rom. 14:2-3
