reflection: Our Jericho road | Donna Chase

In 2019 I had the privilege of traveling to the Holy Land with an amazing group of clergy and educators from Greensboro. Many participate in the Greensboro Faith Leaders Council, whose mission is to build an interracial and interfaith body of faith communities to work for peace and justice in Greensboro. Traveling together gave me not only a new perspective but also new relationships through shared experiences.

God of Love, give us a deep love for you, so that we can see the world as you see it, feel the compassion you feel, and be a people who live out your grace to others. Open our eyes that we might see what the Good Samaritan saw. Grant us the insight to see the needs of others, the wisdom to know what to do, and the courage to do it. We pray for all of those who in many and varied ways have been stripped, beaten, and robbed of life. We pray for those we might cross the road to avoid, those we have excluded because of race, status, ethnicity, gender, ability, or history. May dignity be restored, mercy shown, and wholeness and healing cover our city. Give us a future filled with your plans of peace and hope for all. Amen.
