We label ourselves liberal conservative democrat republican young and old. We say that we are welcoming to all but we condemn those with whom we disagree. We hold our line with military precision and the strength of a toddler who refuses to give up their toy. God grant us the space to let go. Grant us the peace to relinquish control. Grant us the strength to stand up and speak your peace in the ears of our neighborhood, our nation, our world.
Time for silent reflection.
