Group Description

+ WELCOME and GOODBYE +
On A Left Wing and A Prayer
2004 - 2010

This group was for those of us on the left side of the church and in our right minds. A place where Christians could come together to prayerfully support social justice, progressive values, and a politics of compassion. A place where progressive Democratic politics and Christian faith found their intersection at the point of prayer. But after much consideration, we have closed this group as an active group. To join in an active conversation, check out our "bigger sister" website: CrossLeft.org

CARTOON FOR THE DAY:
Rob Rogers, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


VOICE OF THE DAY:
We lay foundations that need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything
and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way,
an opportunity for God's grace to enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are the workers, not master builders, ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.
-- Oscar Romero


VERSE OF THE DAY:
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted...
Eccl. 3:1


PRAYER OF THE DAY:
Gracious God,

Send us anywhere in this world You would have us go
Only go thou with us.

Place upon us any burden You desire
Only stand by us to sustain us.

Break any tie that binds us
Except the tie that binds us to thee.

Amen.

-- John Shelby Spong
