Hurricane Prayer

Sep 9, 2017

During scary times like the past few weeks of brutal weather, I am grateful for my years steeped in Scripture and liturgy. The words of my tradition have been prayed by millions of people before me throughout thousands of years of trials and tragedy. They give me a vocabulary of both lament and hope, a way to feel part of a larger community of humanity and faith.

The names in the drawing are those of family and friends who are directly affected by the hurricanes.
