Good morning brothers and sisters of faith,
In the midst of the chaos and confusion, we feel overwhelmed, overrun by events too big for us to manage or understand….
“What does the Lord require of us? the prophet Micah asks. God answers –
What does the Lord require, but to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”
Did you notice?
When raging waters are rising and hot flames are ignited, every little act of justice, every small word of kindness, and gentle step matters. A lot.
Our nation is shaken to the core. We are looking at a steep uphill climb to get out of this. Keep the faith people, we worship a God who is greater than all of this. A God who has some basic, doable advice for us: Do justice. Love kindness. Walk humbly.
Sisters and brothers, let us pray, heart-deep, insistent prayers for peace. Amen?
