Caring means we share the pain of others,
knowing we can avoid the pain
by avoiding the care.
Caring means we act for what is right,
knowing it is easier to accept what is wrong.
Caring means devotion
to the hard work of healing,
recognition of the inner worth
of every child of God,
a commitment to a vision of a better world.
We do not care to make our own lives easier.
We care because life is too hard for too many.
We care because God’s work
must truly be our own,
because hope is not hope
unless it overcomes despair.
We care because Jesus died
and was raised for us.
We care because God the Creator,
the God who loves,
the God we worship,
our God . . . cares.
