April 18, 2014–‘Good’ Friday

Today I mourn.

I grieve for all those who have been unjustly accused;
unjustly prosecuted;
unjustly punished;
unjustly killed.

I pray for those I know who are perpetually put in these unjust situations.
I pray for my Latina/o friends,
my African-American friends,
my poor friends,
my gay friends
–for all my friends who are ‘suspect’.

I repent of participation in systems of such abuse.
God forgive me.
God forgive us.

Open our eyes!
Open our ears!
Open our hearts!

Teach us to be different.
And to love difference.
