PCL at a Glance for June 23, 2020

Inspirational Thought and Prayer: Recently, I was asked to be one of the speakers for Livingston Light Up Night, which is on July 1, beginning at 8:00 pm. At this time in our country when there are so many uncertainties that include COVID-19, racial tension, systemic injustice, unemployment, and mental health issues, Livingston Light Up is a voice, or light, of solidarity to support one another with respect and dignity. With the hope of bringing folks together with a simple light, and the desire to move forward with conversation that will lead to action against injustice and inequality. For my part I prayed a prayer of solidarity that I would like to share with you as this week’s Inspirational Thought. I invite you to reflect on how it speaks to you.


Tonight, we come together in solidarity with one voice and one heart to support each other during these times of uncertainty. we grieve the loss of those who have died succumbed to the COVID virus and for those who have watched in vigil as they slipped from this world to the next. we pray for those who have been discriminated against due to the color of their skin; or for whom they love. we pray for those dealing with fears and anxiety over how to pay bills and buy food. as a community we stand as a light of hope that will lead the way to love all with liberty and justice. may each light represent the thousand points of lights that has made our country and community strong to endure times of trouble. as your servant, Rev. Martin Niemöller, said so many years ago, but is pertinent for today:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

May we speak out as we strive to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you trusting in your leading and guiding for a time such as this. amen.

Until we meet again,

Pastor Dan
