Foolishness to Believe We Can Make a Difference

"Why stand we here trembling around, calling on God for help, and not ourselves, in whom God dwells, stretching a hand to save the falling man?"          - William Blake
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, hunger, homelessness, and rejection, so that we may reach out our hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in the world so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.

(Quote from Sojourners Verse and Voice  Prayer adapted from Education For Justice)
