Invitation to Rise
He invites us to rise: To allow God into the dead places of our own lives, in our communities, in our nation and world.
He invites us to listen with compassion, so that we hear what is under the surface of the words we share.
He invites us to see with compassion, so we can see what might be hidden in plain site. Today embrace the compassion of our Lord. Let it rise within you.
Prayer: God help me to see need, in the faces of those on the margins, in places I would rather not look. Open me to your expansive grace that breaks down barriers and includes all. May I be an agent of your compassion today. Amen.
