For food in a hungry world, for companionship in a world of loneliness, for peace in an age of violence, we give thanks.
this is the new, non-religion-specific grace that newnham college cambridge is hoping to adopt (except this is in english and the grace will be in latin, obv).
Bless us Lord God and bless these gifts which by your generosity we are about to eat, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
one professor (beard) said the new grace was
disguising a load of well-meaning platitudes in some posh dead language, which was actually an insult to that dead language.
i quite like it. wish a lot of our public prayers could be so meaningful.
