Week 2: Love

"Inspire or witness to him, that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection"

O God, the Father of all, whose Son commanded us to love our enemies: Lead them and us from prejudice to truth: deliver them and us from hatred, cruelty, and revenge; and in your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


1 John 4:7-12


Revolutions do not happen only in grand moments in public view but also in small pockets of people coming together to inhabit a new way of being. We birth the beloved community by becoming the beloved community.. When a critical mass of people practice together, in community, and as part of movements for justice, I believe we can begin to create the world we want, here and now. -Richard Rohr
