As we close another month,
And come to the middle of the week,
And engage in this crucial election season in the midst of a global pandemic-
We are praying
We are protesting
We are practicing love from a distance and in new ways
We are declaring truth and demanding justice
We are waiting
We are believing
We are imagining
We are trusting
Are you paying attention, God?
I hope so.
