There is so much violence in the world today. Christians are being driven out of their homes in places where they have dwelt for nearly two thousand years. As a community we must lift them in prayer. This call to prayer is one we need.
I cannot write the same words today,
After Auschwitz and Hiroshima,
Nothing comes out the same way,
The middle class realities normally aglow,
Make very little sense,
Now that I know,
The pied pipers are calling me to ignore,
The ongoing violence, militarism and war,
Speak now and never ever hold my peace,
I’m calling out the corporate industrial beast,
With the words,
You’ve might have heard,
Jesus loves you this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
