A Prayer for Reconciliation


Where there is separation

there is pain.

And where there is pain

there is story.

And where there is story

there is understanding

and misunderstanding


and not listening.

May we — separated peoples, estranged strangers,

unfriended families, divided communities —

turn toward each other,

and turn toward our stories,

with understanding

and listening, with argument and acceptance,

with challenge, change

and consolation.

Because if God is to be found,

God will be found

in the space
