“Rushville, IL, Solidarity,” the daily photo from the Rev. David Duncan.

God of justice and truth, you grieved our scapegoating of our Japanese American neighbors during World War II and our neighbors of Chinese background during the pandemic. Ukraine is the victim of Putin, not the Russian people or the Russian restaurant down the street. By your grace, as this time of crisis lengthens, deliver us from easy answers and snap judgements, especially when they deepen divisions and victimize others. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
