I normally wouldn’t post anything to do with my personal religious beliefs to this blog–which is not about religion or news–but, as a Baltimorean, I felt powerfully like I wanted/needed to share this post from St. Paul’s Episcopal of Downtown Baltimore.
Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
