Humpday Devo: Post-Election Pick Me Up

This week’s Humpday Devo is a simple Post-Election Pick Me Up.


Scripture

Deuteronomy 29:10-13

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.


Poem

“For You, O Democracy”, by Walt Whitman

Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,

I will make the most splendid race the sun ever shone upon,
I will make divine magnetic lands,
                   With the love of comrades,
                      With the life-long love of comrades.
I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of America, and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over the prairies,
I will make inseparable cities with their arms about each other’s necks,
                   By the love of comrades,
                      By the manly love of comrades.
For you these from me, O Democracy, to serve you ma femme!
For you, for you I am trilling these songs.

Prayer

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
