Election Day: perspective from the Prayer Book

From this morning's online Daily Office, one of the collects:

God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the whole human family, we pray.

Yes... though did you notice in the reading from Revelation the (gulp) grapes of wrath were mentioned?

But the reassurance of the parable of the fig tree (Luke 13) helped.

Peace to us all.

Sure did. And almost posted something from the Psalms for the day...

Peace to us all, indeed.

Thanks for stopping by!
