No Impossible Wisdom Is Asked of Us…

From that great W. E. B. DuBois – a prayer for today…

“Grant us, O God, the vision and the will to be found on the right side of the great battle for bread, which rages around us, in strike and turmoil and litigation. Let us remember that here as so often elsewhere no impossible wisdom is asked of (us), only Thine ancient sacrifice – to do justice and love mercy, to walk humbly – to refuse to use of the world’s goods more than we (need), to be generous with those that earn but little and to avoid the vulgarity that flaunts wealth and clothes and ribbons in the face of poverty. These things are the sins that lie beneath our labor wars, and from such sins, defend us. Amen.”
