Sunset on the Tidal Basin, Washington, DC before the #WeAreCharlottesville vigil

We wait for you, Lord
More than watchers of the morning,
More than mourners in the evening,
More than questioners of your timing.

We wait for you, Lord
In the cacophony of pain,
In the silence of our doubts,
In the answers that do not comfort.

We wait for you, Lord
The one who formed the universe
The one who hears our anger
The one who loves. Abundantly. Always loves.

We wait for you, Lord…

We wait…

Amen.
