One blood

"O God, you have made of one blood all the people of the earth..." BCP collect for peace

So we cry with one voice for peace to rule our hearts and minds, that we might ask for your guidance in being able to accomplish this task. For the way of peace is hard, hard to find in the midst of the turmoil of our hearts and minds. With you is the ability to remember we are all sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers. Let us work hard to remember the way is in loving our enemies because this was your way also, through to the cross and onto resurrection. Not in the violence proposed by your followers but in arms outstretched to gather all to you. Amen.
