This week’s Humpday Devo is a simple Post-Election Pick Me Up.
You stand assembled today, all of you, before the Lord your God—the leaders of your tribes, your elders, and your officials, all the men of Israel, your children, your women, and the aliens who are in your camp, both those who cut your wood and those who draw your water— to enter into the covenant of the Lord your God, sworn by an oath, which the Lord your God is making with you today; in order that he may establish you today as his people, and that he may be your God, as he promised you and as he swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
“For You, O Democracy”, by Walt Whitman
Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,
Gracious God, save us from cynicism or haughtiness, from the temptations of dividing people into winners and losers and from forgetting that the Earth is yours and all that is in it. Teach us a humility that forgives, apologizes and tears down barriers. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
