Faithful, Mordecai reveals his trust in God.
Rain continues falling,
Falling into despair he dons the sackcloth of grief.
Thunderous evil persists,
death will surely follow.
Esther’s life at risk, she chooses the most loving action in “just such a time as this.”
She chooses love and justice and hope.
Let us pray,
Mystical one, touch our hearts as you did with Mordecai and Esther. Bolster our resolve and point the way. Perhaps, we too have come to this crossroad, for “just such a time as this.” Amen.
Let us worship the One who loves
in times like then and times like now.
Tasting grief, tasting joy, with hesitancy and resolve we are here to worship God.
