“Then God said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness.’ So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.”
~ Genesis 1:26a, 27a, 31a
Loving Jesus, who walks with the sorrowful: give strength to all who walk the pilgrim journey though hatred, stereotypes, racial violence, and even death, that they may know your strength and comfort in the face of these troubles. Loving Jesus, walk with them. -or- Loving Jesus, walk with us. Loving Jesus, walk with them. -or- Loving Jesus, walk with us. Amen.
