IMG_6818God of peace,
God of justice,
God who makes swords to plowshares
And leads slaves to freedom:
Kyrie eleison.

Christ of compassion,
Christ of confrontation,
Jesus who healed the sick
And overturned tables:
Christe eleison.

Comfort us.
Shelter us.
Empower us.
Transform us.
Have mercy on us, O Holy One.
