Scripture for Today

In days to come

God’s beloved community

Shall be established throughout the Earth

All people shall be welcome in it

All peoples shall come and say

We are grateful that God made us as we are

Each as we are unique and beautiful

reflecting the facets of creation

Like the sides of cut gemstone

Like sparkling water in a rushing stream

Let us walk together in God’s ways

For from God has gone forth the Good Word

That all are welcome

That none shall be turned away or beaten or caged

That no one shall be choked or shot or tased

Nor need they hurt one another anymore

For God has said that their lives are bound together like vines on a branch

Like tangled strands of DNA, impossible to separate

In days to come

God’s beloved people will lay down their fears and hear what God says

There is plenty for all

And want for none

And on that day

The wanderer will find welcome

And the refugee will find friendly faces

a bed

hot food



medical care

a flu shot

legal assistance

clean socks


And love will know no borders or walls

For in God’s beloved community there are no distinctions

God will wipe away the tears from all faces

The fears and delusions that beset the people

God will take away

And there shall be no harm or ruin on all the land

For the Earth is filled with the wisdom and love of God

As water covers the sea

The people need only look to see it
