A prayer for Connecticut


Gracious and loving God,
you watch the ways of all of us
and the utter destruction of which our hands are capable – over and over again.

We implore you to weave goodness and grace
In the lives of those destroyed by senseless violence.

Surround those whose lives are shattered
with a sense of your present love.
Wrap them in the worn quilt of your compassion.
Though they are lost in grief,
May they find you and be comforted.



I am done mollycoddling the willfully ignorant
A lesbian walks into a garage, oil and minds are changed
Trump alone cannot overturn marriage equality, but that is not the point
Nasty women in the bible, I love you
