From Rev. Sara Gavit

 

Last week, over the course of a few days, we heard about several hate crimes committed around the country. Pipe bombs sent through the mail, two African-American citizens killed at a grocery store in Kentucky and then the murder of eleven people worshipping at their synagogue in Pittsburgh.

It is during dark times like this when we, as people of faith, are called to both prayer and action. We pray for the souls of the dead, comfort for those who grieve, and healing for those who traumatized.  And, we are also called to, in the words of Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, “…honor the memories of those who were murdered by fighting for a world that values every life — refugee and citizen, of every race and religion — and that creates cultures and policies that reflect those values.”

Prayers and action.  I encourage you to do both.  Pray and also work to erase hatred and division. Together, our light shines even brighter.
