And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

 

For some of us who have dreaded the inauguration of our president, whom the majority of voters did not choose, it is with heavy hearts and anxiety that we come before God today. Let us take to heart the words of Paul, “And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another.” We will all need encouragement and love and we will need to support one another in the resistance of injustice and the preservation of our constitution. We will need to be vigilante and to actively participate in protests and campaigns to protect the freedoms which until now many of us thought safe. In the past people of all faiths came together to seek justice and to promote freedom and I pray that once again faith communities will unite to protect the hard won freedoms of all Americans.

  1. After Saturday’s Women’s Marches I am both heartened and more peaceful. We are the Faith Communities and the people who can make a difference and speak up for the rights of all of our Brothers and Sisters no matter who they are.
