Showing up to fight for justice,
Moving forward hand in hand,
Working, praying, singing, striving,
For a fair and equal land.
Marching on the side of justice,
Let our banners be un-furled,
May our words and actions lead us,
To a fair and equal world.
Standing on the side of justice,
A Version of the Prayer of Jesus, rewritten by Rev. Maud Robinson
Mystery of Life; Source of Love and Beauty
We stand in awe in the presence of the Universe.
We celebrate the joy of possibility.
May we move our world closer
to the Dream of equity and justice.
Though often distracted by material concerns,
When even now a woman can’t simply lift her head and walk
And so many leaders cannot lead, yet seem to know how to talk
Even now people are starving, and , mostly men , are still fighting
Even now our biodiversity, we are starving; and many are denying the right of life to so
Eternal God, we seek through prayer to uplift our minds and hearts and refresh our spirits.
Spirit of love be with us.
We are grateful to share fellowship with each other but we come with haunting images in our minds images of people in distress, people looking for sanctuary – children, mothers, fathers, grandparents, people from across
` Beauty is truth, truth beauty,- that is is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.`
John Keats (1820) from Ode on a Grecian Urn
Truth is unblemished and clean,
like a snowdrop piercing the hard earth,
or a slender branch or leaf,
or a curlew`s call across the dark moor.
