CLUB COLLECT

Keep us, O 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 asl pretense and meet each other face to face—without 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, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward 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 woman’s heart of us all, and oh Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.
—MARY STUART
