Speaking of love

Maundy Thursday

My spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is desolate.
Psalm 143:4

Today is the day of the new commandment. Love one another as I have loved you, Jesus says. And I look out at the world and see such a great need for love. Fear has closed too many hearts and eyes and throats. The enemy has found a chorus who cry of hate and exclusion and scarcity.

How do I speak love out of and into the desolation?
