This is the table, not of the Church, but of the Lord. It is to be made ready for those who love Christ and who want to love Christ more. So, come, you who have much faith, and you who have little, you who have been here often; and you who have not been for along time, you who have tried to follow and you who have failed. Come, not because it is we who invite you; it is our Lord. It is God's because it is we who invite you; it is our Lord. It is God's will that those who want to be in Christ should meet the Lord here.

Help us to realize that we are all your children and that we each reflect your love. .....from Prayers of the People, Episcopal Book of Common Prayer

Certainly an ancient prayerbook - I really liked the image and hope it's not still in use somewhere
