Evening Prayer – 8 September 2019

September 8, 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A wonderful last day with new friends

A long day of travel on back roads

A sobering experience as we entered Selma

To be at the beginning place of a historic march

You could feel the history

You could feel the tension still in the air

You could hear the voices of the protestors

Fifty-four years later

The journey must continue

As Dr King said on the steps of the Capitol in Montgomery

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

May we continue the fight against racism today

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
