How can we follow you faithfully
in such a complicated time?
How can we know how best to display
compassion in the face of hard realities?
How can we know the difference between
legitimate concern and illegitimate fear?
How can we love both our neighbor across
the street and our neighbor across the ocean?
How can we discern the difference between genuine
discernment and predetermined rationalization?
How can we serve you faithfully
in such a complex world?
By your Spirit,
by your grace,
by your love,
by your Son,
by your word—
show us the way.
