My guess is this email lands on you in as untethered a place as it does me. Who’s not experiencing that right now? It’s awfully uncomfortable. When in such doubt- I lean into my faith, because it’s about all that offsets my fears.

Starting today and for the next nine days I am participating in a daily devotional, and initiative led by a few beacons of light to my faith; Bishop Michael Curry, and the organizations of Forward Movement and Renewal Works. They remind me to lean into love, of my neighbor and nation and to do so by way of prayer. Metta meditation disciplines us to pray for our ourselves, our loved ones and our enemies.

October 27: Pray for the nation

Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace: Give to the people of our country a zeal for justice and the strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
