Unitarian Universalists around the world are turning their caring thoughts and prayers to the people impacted by the disaster unfolding in Nepal. The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) are considering options for effective response. And, the UUA’s Holdeen India Program Director, Derek Mitchell, is in direct communication with grassroots organizations – including the All India Disaster Mitigation Institute – as our global partners mobilize. In the midst of the crisis, let us begin in prayer and prepare for further response.
For the wounded, and the grieving
And for the those who hunger and thirst,
For the lost, the homeless and the uncertain
And for the children, and the elderly,
For the leaders, old and new
And for the healers among them,
For the global community that reaches out in sorrow
And prepares to be in solidarity in the recovery,
We pray for every soul who faces the trauma of the crisis in Nepal.
May the love that knows no bounds or borders,
Be at work within and around us all.
