Posture

I feel like we’re standing on the precipice of that which could the tilt the future of this nation. For better. Or for worse.

In these times, we pour out utterances which are both radical and bold. As we confront and embody the prayer that which we ourselves cannot fully grasp, it is impossible to leave this holy ground unchanged.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,and forgive us our debts,
   as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
   but deliver us from evil.

So let it be.

Rowan Williams provides here the most helpful of reflections.
