A synagogue. A shooter.

11 faithful followers gone.

How long, O God?

A community gathers and prays

the prayers of many traditions.

And over all these things put on love,

which is the perfect bond of unity.

This is our healing balm.

We are all God’s choice, holy and loved.

Today we choose:

Compassion

Kindness

Humility

Gentleness

Patience

And love, always love.

Thanks be to God!


Pray

Holy and gracious God, you lead us through darkness to light. Today give me the strength and courage to show up in a world that needs your love and my kindness. In the name of Christ, the Prince of Peace, Amen.
