Communion for the MLK 2016 Worship at the Presbyterian Center

I was really mad about racism today, and reminded that we are all more than our worst moments (derived from Sister Helen Prejean's ministry and work). Some folks thought this liturgy was pretty good, so I'm posting it in case anyone else wants to use it. 
 MLK Worship January 20, 2016 Presbyterian Center Chapel Original by Laura M. Cheifetz, and quoted text from from Great Thanksgiving H in the Book of Common Worship (and also Scripture) 
 Friends, this is the joyful feast of the people of God. They have come from east and west, from north and south. They came in great joy and with great suffering. They were invaded, colonized, abducted, trafficked to generate wealth for others, their governments overthrown so that others might profit, their lands stolen from them and their children. They are the ones who spread suffering throughout the world, colonizers, invaders, traffickers, and enslavers, overthrowing governments for their own small-minded desires
