Come and be with us today.
You are God; we are not, money is not,
Bombs and guns are not.
Yet, here we are,
Devastated by war in Ukraine,
Stunned and deeply troubled
about the deaths of school children,
of people shopping in a grocery store,
and doctors and health care workers
losing their lives in a hospital.
All happening from guns.
Our concerns are enormous.
Surrounded by violence
We cry out for justice.
The hurt and loss will not leave us.
Help us to find healing that will give
us courage to act and bring about
means to stop this carnage and pain.
Strengthen our resolve to establish change.
