Our Club’s Collect…

HWC’s Collect Since 1915 

By: Mary Stewart, Longmont Colorado

    Keep us, Oh God, from pettiness, let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.

    Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self-seeking.

    May we put away all pretense and meet each other, face to face, with-out self-pity and without prejudice.

    May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.

    Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, and gentle.

    Teach us to put into action our better impulses – straight forward and unafraid.

    Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things of life we are as one…

    And, may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all…

    And, Lord God, let us forget notTo be kind.
