A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart,
and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Tonight… Nepal

image

Another moment when the world feels so small. We watch as the people of Nepal walk the rubble-filled streets in awe and shock. We pray as they move swiftly searching for survivors who are tramped beneath the layers of stone and brick. We grieve the lives lost and those fragile from injury. 

Our hearts ache for this sacred land and these beautiful people. What can we do to help as we watch these events unfold? If money can be sent, I share this international fund suggested by Archbishop Desmond Tutu – Global Giving- Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund 

Financial or physical action is not always possible. May we use the energy from our longing to act for prayers and meditation, sitting in solidarity. 

The prayer below is offered by the Reverend Lisa Fishbeck:

Prayers for the people of Nepal this night. May they know peace in their fear, comfort in their sorrow, care in their need. May they know courage and love.
