This week, I’m moving back from Africa to the U.S. Rather than writing you a half-baked post, I opted for chalkboard art–an artistic version of this challenging Franciscan benediction:
God, give us discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that instead we may live deep within our hearts.
Grant us anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that we may wish for justice, freedom, and peace.
Bless us with enough foolishness to believe we can make a difference in the world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
May God encourage you wherever you’re at, changing your little corner of the world for His renown.
