"The Prayer of Confession" from Mayflower Congregational Church UCC May 10, 2015

All Lives Matter
Lord of Life, we are surrounded by the politics of hatred and division. Every week brings news of another shooting or a city in flames over the death of another black man at the hands of the police. Black lives matter, Blue lives matter, Muslim lives matter? Could we simplify this please: All Lives Matter. Or to put it in the language of Peter's dream at Joppa: "What God has made clean, you must not call profane." Any questions? Amen.
