God of all:

Of devastation

And exhaustion

Of disaster

And triumph

God of the vast world,

and the microscopic

We come to you this Monday morning

And all around us are reminders

Veterans

Ancient and venerable

Philippinoes – utterly devastated, lost, alone and desolate

And us: in our relative peace; our relative settled lives; our relative wealth and comfort

On this Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day or whatever our land names it: help us to see with your eyes, to listen with your ears and most of all to act with your hands and love

We offer our prayers today for all those who seek answers, and memories, and peace

Amen.

We hope you'll join the conversation!
