Holy One, let our church remember discipleship, remember the Jesus who opposed a foreign occupier and called out a corrupt religious and legal system and lost his life in so doing.

Spirit of Truth, may you grant us courage and Remind us of the power in naming things. Let us see with your eyes, and name what we see for what it is- apartheid, ethnic cleansing, forced starvation as a tool of war, genocide.

Let us face our complicity with humility.

Relieve us of our addictions to comfort and peace devoid of justice.

Forgive us, Holy One, we don’t know what we’re doing.

-Rev Korte Yeo, Seekonk, MA
