  Epixel* for March 31, 2013

 

They shall build houses
and inhabit them; they shall plant
vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall
not build and
another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat;
for like
the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
my chosen shall long enjoy
the work of their hands.
–Isaiah 65:21-22

Prayers for Peacemakers, March 27, 2013

Jesus, let the blood of
the brutalized, the sweat of the threatened and widows’ tears lubricate love,
awaken zeal and resurrect humanity, that we may confront people and systems that — in robbing, terrorizing and uprooting Lilia and millions of Colombians — are persecuting
you.

See Lilia’s Story.

Consider going to Colombia on a delegation.

I have never seen a more hopeful future than I have in the way that Palestinians in Gaza have cared for one another and have shown us what humanity is.
