2nd Anniversary

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti.  At 4:53pm today the leadership group invites you to pause and enter into a time of prayer and remembrance, wherever you are. 

 

We lift up in prayer:

      The people of Haiti

      The hundreds of thousands who lost their lives and their families

      Molly and Ryan and their families and friends

      The staff and volunteers of NPFS Haiti

      The children and youth of NPFS Haiti

      All of the numerous NPFS outreach programs

      Jean Francois

 

May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that we will live deep in our hearts.

May God bless us with anger at the exploitation of people and the earth so that we will work for justice, equity and peace.

May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer, so we will reach out our hands to comfort them and change their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with the foolishness to think that we can make a difference in the world, so we will do things which others say cannot be done.

Amen.
