I hope the colours of this image inspire hope rather than the fear that political leaders and conventional media try to spread these days.
May our spirits fly with courage, compassion,tolerance and kindness!
Lord, who can be trusted with power,
and who may act in your place?
Those with a passion for justice,
who speak the truth from their hearts;
who have let go of selfish interests
and grown beyond their own lives;
who see the wretched as their family
and the poor as their flesh and blood.
They alone are impartial
and worthy of the people’s trust.
Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
and their kindness endures forever.
(The Psalms, translations by Stephen Mitchell)
