live and watch

As I took my seat, I felt the humiliating sting of failure, but also the strange realization that I had somehow entered and truly lived the world of the lyrics.

Patti Smith ‘How does it feel‘ The New Yorker

We are here to keep watch. Meanwhile, the Lord who keeps watch over our souls knows our thoughts and motives. We are here as Lifewatch to watch over those most vulnerable. We are here to stand before the Lord to pray for those who are being led to death, to repent for our callousness, and to pray for grace to do all we can to protect those who need our protection.

-Dr. Thomas C. Oden ‘The One Who Keeps Watch over Our Souls
