RevGals sharing a holy moment in Edinburgh April 2015

Holy God!

Yesterday I preached “love is the answer”
Today, my head is full of repulsion: pictures of violence and death fill my news screen and it feels intolerable.
Yesterday I preached “love is the answer”
And I needed to hear it just as much as anyone, yesterday, and today and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Yesterday I preached “love is the answer”
And reading the posts of my sisters and brothers, I am not alone, O God! We all need your love, your fellowship, your strength, so that heart, mind, strength and soul we may love you, and our neighbours and ourselves…

Listen to us O God!
Hear our prayers
Our sighs
Our dreams, hopes, fears
Hear us, and remind us that you and only you are God
And that we have sisters and brothers in Christ
Thanks be.
Amen

  2. Amen! Some days I just turn off the TV or radio, weary from all the bad news. I know I can’t always be an ostrich, and deny what’s happening in the world because then I can’t help. But some days, I need a break from it.
