Wisdom in Their Decisions by Raymond A. Foss
Knowing the times we live in
the groundswell of frustration
the distance of the government
seemingly, from our day to day

The frustration leading
to sometimes hard decisions
choice of where to cut
to believe the anecdotes

A prayer in the congregation
offering up a petition
wisdom in their decisions
guided by our calling

To love our neighbor
as we love ourselves
to care for the ones in need
the least, the last, the lost

That they would be guided
wisdom in their decision
caring for our fellow man
as did the one we follow
the one who became our sacrifice
and paid the price for us

First Sunday in Lent
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
in part based on the testimony
of The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson,
Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire

Ash Wednesday
Facebook message
by Barack Obama
March 9, 2011
“Michelle and I join with millions of Christians
here and across the world to mark Ash Wednesday.
As we observe the season of Lent, we receive
with thanksgiving this opportunity for grace and repentance,
recommit ourselves to our faith, and
remember our obligations to one another.”
