For such a time as this

Esther 4:14
For if you keep silence at such a time as this, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another quarter, but you and your father’s family will perish. Who knows? Perhaps you have come to royal dignity for just such a time as this.”

For such a time as this
We are called
Not to keep silent
But to speak up
For the poor
For the vulnerable
For the homeless
For the hungry
For those persecuted
because of race or religion or colour
For those whose voices are not heard
Whose suffering goes unheeded
Whose rights are violated
For such a time as this
We are called to take risks
To stand alongside God's children
In Missouri ,
in New York, 
in the Ukraine,
in Yemin,
in Israel
in Palestine
in all those places 
where voices are silenced
and where hatred kills.
For such a time as this
We are called
To keep the hope alive
That light shines in the darkness
A light that cannot be extinguished
The light of love
The light of God with us 
For such a time as this.
