From sea to sea to sea, may God bless our land and all the peoples living in the land.
My prayer for you and for all Canadians and the first peoples of this land is that we turn to the one true God who is a Trinity--Almighty Father-creator, Jesus Christ – Redeemer, Holy Spirit- counselor and teacher. I call on the people of Canada to “seek God with all our hearts”. I long for Canada to not only love the new immigrants, the indigenous people and the black/brown people but to uphold true truth, and to practice true justice.
To be kind to one another, to be filled with grace as we deal with one another.
I believe that many of the protests are calling, not for anarchy, but for us to practice true love and true justice. Even though the words of the protest may not be our choice of words, the call is for truth and justice. One of our—that is, Canada’s—challenges is to translate truth and justice into policy or law.
Truth and justice. For those who do not subscribe to the Judeo-Christian world view and the revelation of God as Father-Creator, Son-Redeemer, and Holy Spirit-Counselor, let me say clearly that I believe the law of God is summed up in the words of Jesus: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind… And love your neighbour as yourself. This is the beginning of knowing what truth and what justice are.
May it be so, Lord Jesus.
