Monday we celebrate Martin Luther King Day. As I was thinking about it this morning and meditating on the love of God and the love stones on my altar, I was reminded of this responsive reading that I wrote several years ago. When we immerse ourselves in the love of God our hearts move towards what is right and good and just. I pray that all of us will take time this morning to think about what is right and just in the midst of the strident and often angry cries of the rich and powerful and of the media.
May we all seek what is right and just – for federal workers without pay; for migrants looking for a better life; for refugees forgotten and abandoned in squalid camps; for the homeless, the poor, those with other viewpoints from other, those that are persecuted because of ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.
May we all seek what is right and just and join together to see God’s light shine in the darkness and God’s love reign throughout the earth.
