In Puerto Rico after Maria

Creation is raging

Children are raging

Rightfully so!

What will be left when things settle?

Rainbows and sunshine?

Bareness and despair?

A clean slate?

New possibilities?

Nothing?

God help us to hear what creation is saying to us in these times

Grant us hearts to hear the urgency in the voices of our children

And as we truly listen, give us the courage to respond ~ now!

For the sake of all creation

Amen
