A Housing Advocate's Prayer
Housing For Ally Allyship’s co-leader Pam Hubbard offers the prayer below as we
continue work during the pandemic to see that all our neighbors are stably
housed. It honors the deep need for the integration of both action and
contemplation in the lives of Christ-followers. Richard Rohr says “If we pray
but don’t act justly, our faith won’t bear fruit. And without contemplation,
activists burn out and even well-intended actions can cause more harm than
good. In today’s religious, environmental, and political climate our
compassionate engagement is urgent and vital.”
