A New Bottom Line

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Prayer for Boston

Prayerby Robyn Short

There are moments in life that leave us speechless. Today’s double bombing in Boston is one of those speechless moments. There are no words to describe the grief, the horror, the loss or the pain. There is no way to understand the motives behind such an act of terror. And there is no way of comprehending the madness the perpetrator must be experiencing.

In these “speechless” moments, we must find our voice. We must come together with words of comfort — for those who are victims and for those of us who stand by in horror watching the story of violence and cruelty unfold.

May we find comfort in prayer. May we seek healing for this nation: for those who have been wounded — for their families and their friends — and for the individual(s) who are so wounded that they lash out at thousands of strangers. Forgive them.

Prayer for Healing

Dear God,

Lead us all …

From illusions to Love.

From darkness to Light.

From separation to Unity.

May we all … 

Experience Your peace.

Awaken to Your unconditional love.

Be the source of all healing in the world.

Be with us as we all remain in service to humanity, until we all choose to return to God’s everlasting love.
