John E. Hines

Prophet & Bishop, 1997

Gracious God, your son taught us that in serving the poor and the oppressed, we both serve him and give the world a glimpse of your Reign: Receive our thanks for the life and witness of John Hines, servant and bishop, who selflessly and with courage prophesied against injustice, prejudice, and oppression of every kind, thereby awakening us to the deeper demands of the Gospel. After his good example, strengthen us to risk giving ourselves as he did for the sake of the least among us and to honor your most holy name, this we ask through Jesus Christ, who bids us, each and all, to take up our cross and follow. Amen.
