For Questing Minds   2 comments

From The Hymnal of the Evangelical United Brethren Church (1957):

In times of doubts and questionings, dear Lord,

when our belief is perplexed by

new learning,

new teaching,

new thought,

when our faith is challenged

by creeds,

by doctrines,

by mysteries beyond our understanding,

give us the faithfulness of learners and

the the courage of believers in thee;

give us boldness to examine and faith to trust all truth;

patience and insight to master difficulties;

stability to hold fast our traditions with enlightened interpretations,

to admit all fresh truth made known to us,

and in times of trouble to grasp new knowledge

and to combine it loyally and honestly with the old.

Save us and help us,

we humbly beseech thee, O Lord.

Amen.
