ECCLESIOLOGICAL ETCHINGS June 1, 2020
Prayer for the Week:
For everyone who is angry
For everyone who feels exhausted
For everyone who believes
we are better than this
For everyone who has convinced him/herself
that the answer to it all is found in a meme –
For everyone, Merciful God, a vision is sought
of how justice and kindness
can be enfleshed in human community.
Your prophets spoke of a day
when hatred and distrust would give way
to a peace that would be rooted
in fairness and inclusion for all –
It would emerge from the margins
It would be born into
the repression and dearth of a manger
It would turn the world
upside down with stories
It would continued to seek
reconciliation from a cross.
whose nativity bridged heaven and earth,
demanded the abundant life for all.
The vision is clear
The day is today
It is time for the Body of Christ
to enflesh justice and kindness.
May it be so!
