God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
May we who seek to follow in the way of Jesus
and to be made more and more in the likeness of Christ
live out our calling
as refuge and strength
to those who leave their home in search of safety,
as very present help for those who cannot remain
in the place they once called home.
