Christianity can have wide differences. The Christianity of this land and the Christianity of Christ. The difference is so wide that to receive the one as good, pure and holy is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt and wicked. I hate the corrupt slaveholding, women whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land. I can see no reason, but the most deceitful one, for calling the religion of this land Christianity. I look upon it as the boldest of all frauds, and the grossest of all libels. I am filled with unutterable loathing when I contemplate the religious pomp and show, together with its horrible inconsistencies that surround me.–Frederick Douglass

Prayes Quoted

O God of Elizabeth and Mary,

you visited your servants with news of the world’s redemption

in the coming of the Savior.

Make our hearts leap with joy,

and fill our mouths with songs of praise,

that we may announce glad tidings of peace,

and welcome the Christ in our midst.



Ever faithful God,

through prophets and angels,

you promised to raise up a holy child

who would establish a household of peace and justice.

Open our hearts to receive your Son,

that we may open our doors

to welcome all people as sisters and brothers,

and establish your household in our time. Amen.
