Sharon Francis, England HOLD US IN YOUR MERCY Loving God be there: When we cannot be ourselves for fear of others’ hate. When we cannot love ourselves for self-loathing is too great. When everything we say is construed another way. When it’s clear from ‘our’ communities that they wish we’d go away. Keep us speaking of our love, which is faithful to your call. Keep us demonstrating that sexuality is not our all. Hold us in your mercy through all our earthly days. Till we come home to you, rejoicing in your praise.
