Reflection

We have the power to raise our voices on behalf of those without voice, those held powerless, those whose lives cannot express their desire for better lives. This includes non-human animals as well. We need to remember all this; then we can go that extra mile, take that courageous action, remind that powerful someone that peace and right relationships will only come through justice. We need to not only remember but to act and to make our actions steps toward a better future.

Prayer

Help me, God of Justice, to be a part of the creation of a world where unity and peace have come, in some way, through your action in me.

Action

What is possible for me to do in order to help create the ”reign of God” in our world? With whom can I join my efforts?
