You sent Jesus to show us the face of God
and to help us experience Boundless Love always embracing us in our joys and sorrows.
May we reflect the compassion of Christ to everyone we meet today especially the ones who are grieving great losses.
May we hold our sisters and brothers at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston South Carolina in the embrace of Christ.
May we treat one another as the beloved of God, all races, one family.
Let us take action to live justice and end violence in our world.

"We will never forget the Charleston Massacre.
