Week 6: Privilege

"...Many of the battles that we are fighting today are problems that grow out of intersectional failures of yesterday."

O Great Love, thank you for living and loving in us and through us. May all that we do flow from our deep connection with you and all beings. Help us become a community that vulnerably shares each other’s burdens and the weight of glory. Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our world. [Please add your own intentions.] . . . Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God. Amen.


Matthew 15:21-28
