And on the strangest Sea

Emily Dickinson
God of compassion and consolation,
be with us.
Help us to confront the reality that this
pandemic has laid bare a healthcare system
malicious in its care of marginalized
communities. We see that black and brown
communities are experiencing
extraordinary suffering, pour out your love
so that we might seek repentance for our
complicity. Comfort those mourning and
bring peace to the bedside of the sick.
Amen.
