A complete service is provided including:
Prayer inspired by Lamentations 5
Remember, O Lord, what has befallen your children;
Look, and see their pain and suffering.
Five years of tension, of scarce resources, of lost community and identity,
Their inheritance has been turned over to strangers, their homes, schools and businesses destroyed in the violence.
They have become orphans, fatherless; their mothers are now widows.
They are weary, but are given no rest.…
“Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.”
We are called to be peacemakers,
to stand against injustice, inequality and oppression
For injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Let us gather,
as the children of God,
committed to the call to peacemaking.
We gather, as the children of God,
God of peace is our refuge.
Let us worship God.
