More Than A Prayer…Much More

Rabbi Joe Black is the Senior Rabbi at Temple Emanuel in Denver, Colorado. On the very day students and teachers were slaughtered in Parkland, Florida, Rabbi Black offered this prayer to the Colorado House of Representatives. I find it more powerful than words can convey.

I share, in hopes the deep truths of this prayer reach those whose ears are deafened by the shouts of those who buy Assault rifles…and more importantly to those legislators whose pockets have been lined by the NRA. In my case it would be especially Ted Cruz and if he will share, with Marco Rubio, two of the most vitriolic voices to say this is not the time to discuss gun regulations. I hold that to be WRONG. VERY WRONG.

The prayer that speaks truth and invites action:

About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
