There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3.28)

God of justice,
who rejoice in your creation
and the beauty of our diversity,
give us a passion to live well,
with respect for all,
with delight in difference,
with commitment to inclusion,
and with hope for our future
in Jesus Christ our Lord.

written by The Very Revd Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark
