Scripture
This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place. —Jeremiah 22:3

Wisdom
They came first for the communists
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me,
And by that time no one was left to speak up.
—Attributed to Martin Niemoller

Prayer
Let me follow the Lord who seeks from me what is right and just. Let me follow the Lord who asks me to rescue. Let me follow the Lord who asks me to draw near to foreigner, fatherless and widow, protecting the innocent with vigor. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
