An Advent Prayer

In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in unity,
that our praise and worship
might echo in these walls
and also through our lives.
In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in mission,
that the hope within
might be the song we sing,
and the melody of our lives.
In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in service,
that the path we follow
might lead us from a stable
to a glimpse of eternity.
Amen

a prayer of Mother Teresa

A prayer of compassion from Mother Teresa

Lord, open our eyes
that we may see you in our brothers and sisters.
Lord, open our ears
that we may hear the cries of the hungry,
the cold, the frightened, the oppressed.
Lord, open our hearts
that we may love each other as you love us.
Renew in us your spirit.
Lord, free us and make us one.

AmenĀ 

be the good

This September 11th, on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, one of the orders of the day at brokerage firm BGC Partners in New York City will be investing in efforts to feed people in need throughout the world.

Brokers will be joined on the trading floor by Paulina Vega, Miss Universe 2014, and Rod Brooks, president and CEO of Stop Hunger Now, during the 11th annualĀ BGC Charity Day. Miss Vega and other celebrities will work side-by-side with BGC traders to encourage others to give with their hearts to help Stop Hunger Now end global hunger.

BGC launched Charity Day to commemorate the 658 employees at Cantor Fitzgerald and the 61 employees at Eurobrokers who lost their lives in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. BGC donates all of its global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and select charities, including Stop Hunger Now, throughout the world.

Join us in keeping alive the spirit of unity and compassion
that arose in the aftermath of 9/11.
