Genesis 22: 7-8 (NRSVA)

7 Isaac said to his father Abraham, ‘Father!’ And he said, ‘Here I am, my son.’ He said, ‘The fire and the wood are here, but where is the lamb for a burnt-offering?’ 8 Abraham said, ‘God himself will provide the lamb for a burnt-offering, my son.’ So the two of them walked on together.

God we thank you for all those times

you have helped us to find

another way

Those times when our best intentions

have been overtaken

by your love

Keep on picking away

at our unjust

and inequitable

practices

Keep on dismantling

our prejudice

Show us how to be

counter cultural

Make us unapologetic

about going against convention

when love is at stake.

Keep us following

your alternative way

where love is all.
