A Powerful Prayer to Open a City Council Meeting in Boise, Idaho

“We come before you to confess we seek peace through violence and find security in weapons. And we abandon the hungry and the sick and the homeless, and we pursue wealth at all costs. We mistreat the creation you have entrusted to our care. Forgive us, Holy One for our hubris and our short-sighted behavior. Even so, you love us.” 

-Rev. Marci Auld Glass, Pastor,Southminster Presbyterian Church, in Boise, Idaho, Tuesday, Jan. 5, at the start of a city coucil meeting. (Read more this srticle in Idaho Statesman).
