mlk.jpgToday I am singing and rejoicing because—

We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses

We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses

We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses

Thank you, God!

Now, please God, compel us to lean into this promise with hope and trust

Compel us to work in light of this promise with perseverance and grace

Compel us to live in response to this promise with joy and gratitude

For your creation’s sake
For your people’s sake
For your love’s sake

Amen
