The Election

This long awaited

day

cries out

for history

remembered

for honor

for character

for silence.

For prayers

of unity

rather than

choice

gratitude

for freedom

hard won.

For the stories

of long ago

when courage

and sacrifice

prevailed

the common good

a model for living.

For gospel words

that

center and distill

what justice looks like

what justice feels like

for all.

Words that remind

love

is a verb.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27
