Week of Prayer – Day 3

Unusual Kindness

Acts 27:22,34“I urge you now to keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship… none of you will lose a hair from your heads…”


Keep up your courage
when the storms of life
wash you up
on an unexpected shore.

Keep up your courage
take barricades down
welcome the stranger
become the guest.

Keep up your courage
listen to the other
seek to understand
disagree agreeably.

Keep up your courage
when the ship runs aground
prepare a new vessel
chart another course.

Keep up your courage
stowaways, castaways
whatever our crew
it’s all hands on deck
creation made new.
