a prayer for voting.

There are people in this room who are voting for Hillary Clinton
    and they can not fathom how anyone could ever vote for Donald Trump

There are people in this room who are voting for Donald Trump
    and they can not fathom how anyone could ever vote for Hillary Clinton

There are people in this room who are voting for neither or not at all
    and they can not fathom how anyone could ever vote for any of our choices. 

Forgive us. 

Forgive us for not only our inability to fathom those who disagree with us
    but for our addiction to our own bias and our insistence on building its walls
                                    higher and thicker                        

Forgive us for tribes. And for privileged egos.
Forgive us for our ignorance, our aggression, our arrogance, and our violence. 

We are infatuated with insults. 
We are enthralled with enemies. 
We bow to fear. 

Violence runs through our veins. 
Indulgence through our arteries. 

We are kingdom people, we say. 
Bring the kingdom of God. 

Though we tend to call out “Crucify Him - or Her”
More than we call out “Father forgive them” 

Forgive us because we are better than this. 
Forgive us because the kingdom of God does not dance with other kingdoms. 
Forgive us because it is already. It has been. It will be. 

It is

Salt and light and meek and peacemaking. 

It is

Do not worry and do not judge.

It is 

Forgiveness of those who have sinned against us. 

It is 

giving to those who need
loving those against us
refusing to say fool and refusing to lust flesh
and having no need for oaths and promises and fact checkers. 

Because the needy and the enemy are us. 
Because the fool and flesh don’t exist. 

Because we are better than this. 
We bear the image of the Divine force of all that is good is this universe 

In us. 

And so do they. 
Yes, even them. 

We are so much better than this. 
And so are they. 
Yes, even them. 

So we fill in an empty circle with a dark pen. 
We bow our heads and place our hands over our heart
We say our prayers and pledge allegiance

To…

To those whom put on the prince and princess costume at Disney World. 

There is no harm. As long we know we are pretending.

There is much greater emptiness to fill in. 
The emptiness of a facade and fake kingdom
With the ground, and awareness, and event of Divine Love. 

May we never stop voting for that. 
May we never stop asking, seeking and knocking on those doors  

Because we are better than this. 
And so are they. 

Amen. 

it's over.

well here we go.
