Today at the NY State Capitol many faith leaders joined with union, labor and members of the peace movement as part of the commemoration of the 51st Anniversary this week of the March on Washington and as part of the Moral Week of protests, demonstrations and gatherings. I was honored to be a part of today’s leadership and to offer the following invocation. We are part of the growing #MoralMondays movement in New York State, the #1 state with income inequality in the United States. Thank you to the Labor-Reglion Coalition for it’s organization behind our witness today. It was an honor to stand with many faith leaders and others from around the State and to be a part of shared witness together! I especially love this image of going with our dreams and not our fears, for that is in my mind, the urgent task of leadership and faith for the living of these days…
Let us pray,
gathering first into the silence of this time,
allowing the Great Spirit of God to fill and renew our spirits.
Let us pray….
