a Lament Petition by bill leety, honorably retired minister

“We hold these truths?”nothing can save us or the children from assassins’ fury; and nothing in all creation can separate us from the love of God.

“My country ’tis of Thee?”
though our daily chant of dirges, as anthems of the heart and songs of Zion go silent. “where there is no peace?”

Comfort, comfort, Lord. Strengthen citizens to find our voices and your voice;
deliver us from the deadly pestilence and compel us to stand with risen Christ in harm’s way and to risk something big for something good.

In this time of mass shootings, we especially lift up prayers for our sisters and brothers in Dayton and El Paso.  At least thirty-one people were killed in mass shootings over the past weekend.
