Facing One Another
Put away all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander,
together with all malice, and be kind to one another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.
Seek the LORD while he may be found,
call upon him while he is near . . .
let them return to the LORD, that he may have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Isaiah 55:6a, 7b-c
