As humanity reels from one crisis to another, let us pay attention to what God is saying to us in and through the particulars of our lives and our times.
Clear a Holy Space
inspired by Isaiah 11: 1-10
with axe and winnowing fork
you clear a holy space
where hurt and destruction have no place,
and a little child holds sway.
Clear our lives of hatred and despair,
sow seeds of joy and peace,
that shoots of hope may spring forth
and we may live in harmony
with one another. Amen.
