The Common Good

Prayer of the Day: Forgive

Lord, where there is injury, let me sow forgiveness. On that day when you are going to weigh our history, forgive those who have wronged and humiliated our brothers and sisters, for they too are your sons and daughters. But give us strength so that we will never do ourselves what they have done. Rather, make us people of solidarity, compassion, adn unlimited love. Amen.  Adapted from The Prayer of Saint Francis

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
