1 John 3:1-3
Matthew 5:1-12


On this All Saints Day, we are reminded of the saints who have gone before and encouraged to travel the long-trodden road toward God’s love, justice, and liberation.

Jesus asks us to re-think, to re-imagine, what the world has taught us about the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots, the powerful and the powerless. It’s up to us to be the liberators for those oppressed by society’s notions. 

This week, look closely at the way the media and pop culture portray the “blessed” in today’s world. For every news item you read about society’s blessed, find a story about Jesus’ blessed.

Blessed One,
you never cease to surprise us.
We grow accustomed
to a way of accounting for our lives
that often puts us in the losing column.
Help us claim
the identity and direction you offer to us
so that we may stay on the road
to your freedom,
and compassion.
