Keep us, good Lord,
Under the shadow of your mercy
In this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
And lift up all that are brought low,
That we might rejoice in your comfort
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen.
May you find blessing and peace at this difficult time.
On 28th August it was 57 years since Dr Martin Luther King delivered his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech. We are all familiar with the repeated ‘I have a dream’ but I have included here a little of the speech that is perhaps less familiar because it is inspiring and wonderful for us in our world where hope seems diminished.
The line I like most is ‘with this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope’
Our newspapers, tv news and media in general have manufactured a mountain of despair out of this pandemic, might I suggest that we hew out of this stones of hope. Let us thank God for Dr King, for his optimism, strength and hope as we ask God for some of that same faith and hope as we continue to face this ongoing health crisis. We as a parish now know of a couple of cases of this crisis among our parish family and extended family so we continue our prayers for them as we assure ourselves and each other of the hope we grasp as Christian people. With these stones of hope we will help build a post Covid world and society.
Here is part of what Dr King said:
“This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the mount with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the genuine discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, pray together; to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom forever, knowing that we will be free one day.”

Lighten our darkness, Lord we pray, and by your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grant us, Lord, the lamp of charity which never fails, that it may burn in us and shed its light on those around us , and that by its brightness we may have a vision of that holy City, where dwells the true and never-failing light, Jesus Christ our Lord. amen.
