day 190

"Give justice to the weak and
         the orphan;
   maintain the right of the
         lowly and destitute.
Rescue the weak and the
         needy;
   deliver them from the hand
         of the wicked."  Psalm 82:3-4

shelter for those
      caught in life's storms,
food for children
      hungering for hope, as well;
a welcome to all
      pushed aside by the world;
standing nose-to-nose
      with oppression's supporters;
calling the vulnerable
      our sisters and brothers . . .
. . .
   these are some of the ways
   we can pull God's beloved
out of those fists tight with

judgment.
