Ways to Support the Community at the Crossing

Give, pray, host, learn, partner

The Community at the Crossing, a program of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, is funded by solely by donations. It therefore needs the support of philanthropic individuals, foundations, and corporate partners in order to make this vision a reality.

The Community at the Crossing will transform the lives of individuals from all areas of the U.S. and from all walks of life. Participants for the program are selected because of their demonstrated openness to God’s call in their lives and the promise they show to have great impact in their communities. They will help lead our society to unity and peace - wherever they find themselves. To ensure access for all qualified candidates to this groundbreaking program, the tuition fee is “pay what you can.”

Prayer for Transformation

Lord, transform us – not for our benefit, but for the benefit of the world.

Do your work in us –

molding us,

making us,

shaping us,

changing us,

To be the new creation you have called us to be in Jesus Christ.

Do your work in our church –

Help us to be the body of Christ

engaged in mission,

testifying to the power of our faith,

witnessing to the presence of our living and loving

Savior, Jesus Christ.

Help us surrender the church back to you. It is yours, not ours.

Let us lay aside our personal agendas and preferences so we can be fully committed to your calling for us.

Do your work in our world –

Give to us a vision of transformed lives,

neighborhoods, and communities and how we can partner with you

to see what can happen when people of faith make an eternal difference –

living and loving like Jesus and giving themselves fully –

heart, mind, and strength –

to be the very presence of Jesus Christ in our world,

bringing blessings and redemption for the glory of God! Amen!

Prayer from the Reformed Church in America
