Reading for June 19 from Praying for Justice. “Shout for joy, O heavens! And rejoice, O earth! Break forth into joyful shouting, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people and will have compassion on [the] afflicted.” Isaiah 49: 13

 

Thank you, Maurizio. This book was inspired after the 2016 election of Donald Trump. It was put together by multiple volunteers in order to get it printed & shipped by the inauguration, a short 2 months. I noticed it in the online catalog when I was ordering another book from FGC. My copy arrived the morning of the inauguration and I looked through it as I was waiting at a “silent inauguration” in Nashville. Some days I look at a particular day’s verse & wonder about how prophetic that verse is- almost like it was reserved for a day when it would be so sadly relevant to the current spirit of unkindness and actions so opposite from those Jesus commanded us.
