Awaiting the grand jury’s verdict in the Ferguson, Missouri case, let us pray with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

We thank you for your church, founded upon your Word, that challenges us to do more than sing and pray, but go out and work as though the very answer to our prayers depended on us and not upon you. Help us to realize that humanity was created to shine like the stars and live on through all eternity. Keep us, we pray, in perfect peace. Help us to walk together, pray together, sing together, and live together until that day when all God’s children — Black, White, Red, Brown and Yellow — will rejoice in one common band of humanity in the reign of our Lord and of our God, we pray. Amen.

 

One thought on “All God’s Children

  1. I don’t know where else to send this, so I’m sending it here. Know that you and all the brave clergy folk who are doing the hard work of bearing witness there in Ferguson are in my thoughts, my prayers, and my mind. I’m from a little town down the road a bit out of St. Louis and have watched this whole thing unfold with great sadness and all-too-familiar low, low expectation of justice. Go with God.
