A Special Justice Moment in worship! 

The poet Mary Olver writes, “Attention is the beginning of devotion.”  We cannot (and will not) love and deeply regard and care for each other – for people, beings or places – if we do not truly see and notice one another.  Only by paying attention and by being present are we able to see and respond in love to the needs of others.
