    “The eye cannot say to the hand,  ‘I have no need of you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.' On the contrary, the members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and those members of the body that we think less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect.”

    ~ 1 Corinthians 12: 21-23

    God of freedom and peace, who sees your children through all circumstances: help us walk hand in hand with one another, that together we may overcome all evil forces which attempt to divide us from each other; in the name of the One whose Body is made of many members, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    ~ Drawing from We Shall Overcome” by Sr. Heather Josselyn-Cranson


    21 Days of Hope, as a devotion, is a journey through scripture, prayer, and resources that can move those of us who are white toward a closer understanding of racism in our country and the experience of our black and brown brothers and sisters.
