Human Rights

We live in a war torn world.  People long for the freedom and the rights that I live with everyday.  Cries for freedom ring out: Egypt, Syria, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Myanmar...

So this year's blog action day on Human Rights on October 16 is the right call to action for 2013!

A prayer...

O holy God, you love righteousness and hate iniquity: Strengthen we pray, the hands of all who strive for justice throughout the world, seeing that all human beings are your offspring, move us to share the pain of those who are oppressed, and to promote the dignity and freedom of every person; through Jesus Christ the Liberator, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (from GC 1979)
