Rev. Sheelagh’s Thought For The Week
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Our constitution may not be flawless, but it is the best we have. As we celebrate the founding of the nation and the constitutional rights we all have, let us give thanks for our liberties and our civic duties. Our constitution affords everyone, yes everyone, an opportunity to have their case heard by a jury of peers. That’s a huge responsibility and duty of care. Jury verdicts change lives. Jesus calls us to a special place of compassion for prisoners. We see the impact that incarceration has on the lives of our PATCH children. Please pray for all jurors this week; for those awaiting trial; those who provide expert counsel and for all who strive for justice and the end of oppression in our society. May God bless America, and may you all have a wonderful Fourth of July. +
