See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. 1 John 3:1
Loving God, with tender mercy you nurture us, with care you correct us, with compassion you give yourself to the world that we might see and touch and know your goodness. Thank you for this family into which you have called us, this strange assembly called church, and this holy family of life in your Spirit. Lead us in righteousness, encourage us in truth, and develop in us a forgiving spirit, filled with the love that is your gift, in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

A new U.S. policy implemented by President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions will separate this girl from her mother, with no guarantee of timely reunification or even contact during their separate detentions.
