Note: My beloved America is embroiled in turmoil – political, racial, and social. Whilst I grieve our present circumstance, I, as a Christian, thus, from that standpoint, pray that we, each and all, of my national family will behold and follow another way.
O Spirit of God, blessed pneuma from on high, animating breath of all life: Renew our minds with wisdom, bringing alway to our lively remembrance the words of our Savior Jesus, and refresh our hearts with love, broadening ever our active concern for our neighbors, near and far, alike and different, another and other; that we may know ourselves as those born to serve and, in our service, find our joyous purpose. Amen.
My sisters and brothers, let us listen to the wind. Not only to the ruach of God, coming from beyond, bearing a message of Divine wisdom, but also the zephyr that blows through the world around us, bearing to us word of the want and need of neighbor, every neighbor.
As we listen, let us, too, lean inwardly toward our minds and hearts, then outwardly, sharing our truths, learning one from another; that we, together, may come together freely, fully, faithfully.
