reform us, Lord

 

where is the church

when racial injustice

perpetuates oppression?

if we are the body

we kneel in humility

to confess our own sins

where is the church

when families breakdown

because fathers are absent?

if we are the body

we live out God’s truth

and serve with his love

where is the church

when devastated mothers

regret aborting their children?

if we are the body

we share the powerful

hope of the Holy Spirit

where is the church

when mentally ill people

live on the streets?

if we are the body,

we will follow Jesus in

redeeming the world !

    Sometimes the church is within a voting booth or in the human resources department. In the heart of an officer that helps a troubled POC instead of reacting in fear. Sometimes the church is absent. That is when our Lord weeps.
