A PRAYER FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Loving God, in Black History month we reflect on:
- The centuries old trauma of the slave trade and the legacy of slavery;
- The decades old exploitation and oppression of the newcomer;
- The simmering resentment felt by some for those who may appear different.
But we choose to shine bravely, reflecting your glory,
we choose to reject the lies of racism,
we choose to dance…
make music …
share pain …
spread joy …
and be wonderful.
We choose to conquer our fears.
We choose to fight every day to dismantle racism
because we are of the earth and of the stardust.
We are precious, loved, and called to shine bright like the stars we are made of.
And we ask for your blessing on our choices and your help in living them out!
