struggling to be that pastor/theologian I found the words of Marnie Barrell's hymn helpful today:

We do not hope to ease our minds
by simple answers, shifted blame,
while Christ is homeless, hungry, poor,
and we are rich who bear his name.
As long as justice is a dream
and human dignity denied,
we stand with Christ; disturb us still
till every need is satisfied.

Jim Gordon

Good one Graeme. Though in the end, words only ever point in the direction of our prayers, but they're all we've got to speak with.
