Volume 1 : Issue 12
April 7, 2017
Last night our President decided we would be safer by launching missiles into Syria. As we mourn for those who have died, and we mourn the continuing fallacy that war and violence can create the beloved community and world we are yearn to create. We are grateful for our colleague Amy Shaw and her "A Prayer For the World".


A Prayer For the World

For all who die in war
We lift up our hearts
For all who live in suffering in the aftermath of violence
We lift up our hearts
For all who give their lives in smoke and flame
We lift up our hearts
For all who go on in honor of the dead
We lift up our hearts
For all who have served
We lift up our hearts
For our country and our world
We lift up our hearts
For a planet that will find peace
We lift up our hearts
For the young and the innocent
We lift up our hearts
For the weary and war torn
We lift up our hearts
For those who would pray
We lift up our hearts
For those too angry to cry
We lift up our hearts
For all of us, for the many
names of God
We lift up our hearts
We lift up our hearts
Shanti, shalom, peace, sa laam.

- Amy Shaw
