every year during the holidays,
Advertisements [?]
my mother-in-law all but forces me to give a prayer before either Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, even though she knows I'm not a believer - it's either that or get a "god is great, god is good" prayer from one of her own kids. I can give good prayer when necessary.

My immediate in-laws aren't fundies, but they're solid Republicans. I'm working on my prayer for this year's Christmas dinner. I'm planning a more pointed version of what I've ad libbed in the past.

Dear Lord, we come before you as a family in the spirit of the season of peace, that you might guide us toward an understanding of all peoples. We ask that you grant us the courage to approach the world with an open heart.

We ask that your blessings be upon ALL those who have died in our current conflicts and that peace be restored to the world. In Christ's name we pray, amen.

This will go over like the proverbial turd in the proverbial punchbowl, I'm certain...
