Blessings and Benedictions from Rev. Larissa Kwong Abaizia

September 8, 2022 by Presbyterian Foundation

God of steadfast presence, there are times we cannot forget. When the clanging of metal and the bursting of flames feel as though they happened just yesterday. Near or far, we cannot escape the memories of violation and loss. Bearing this weight, bless us. Ease our burdens. Remind us to release that which we cling to tightly. Hold us in deep embrace, reminding us that you are a God who never lets us go. Amen.

Rev. Larissa Kwong Abazia is the founder of Courageous Spaces and a consultant with Vandersall Collective.
