Sojourners Verse and Voice – 26 April 2021

April 26, 2021
Verse of the day   Then Jacob tore his garments, and put sackcloth on his loins, and mourned for his son many days. 
– Genesis 37:34
Voice of the day 
Instead of calling for “peace and calm” after an agent of the state takes a human life — just once — it would be so powerful for a leader to call for public mourning, self-reflection, and nationwide repentance. 

– Rabbi Michael Rothbaum
Prayer of the day 
For the unbearable toil of our sinful world, we plead for remission. For the terror of absence from our beloved, we plead for your comfort. For the scandalous presence of death in your Creation, we plead for the resurrection. 

– From Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
