Prayers for Racial Healing: Coming Soon

Updated: Oct 12, 2020


In the Spring of 2020, as our country was calling for racial justice, I was prompted by the Divine to lead a "prayer service for racial healing". I questioned the Divine and wrestled with the idea ("Really? Me? How?) . I also spoke with my bi-racial family about this request. To my surprise, they thought it was a great idea! (My son created this image for our services.)


So each month, we gather virtually - young and old, some steeped in a religious faith tradition and others appreciating that a Divine Spirit unites us. We gather with different shades of skin color and different cultures. And, we gather as one human family, praying that deep healing will occur in our country in regards to race.


"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." That is our mantra. Each service includes Scripture readings from the Judeo-Christian tradition as well as prayers and music. I offer a reflection that weaves together my family's experience with current research. A list of actions that people might take during the month to help our country heal is also included.


People often feel a mix of emotions - shock, sadness, gratitude to be with other like-minded people, hope, peace and many experience the Divine in a new way.


You are most welcome to join us. Also, please extend the invitation to others who might be interested. To be notified of our next service, please fill out the Contact Us form on the bottom of the homepage.


May there be peace on earth and may it begin with you... and me!
