The Mercy of God

If any of you guys have seen the movie City of God, you'll remember the narrator, a black boy called Rocket. There's a guy who comes to our mosque who looks a lot like him. Every time I see him I think of Rocket and that movie, with its fierce carnal pitch and its hysterical brutality. And then I see this young man quietly standing in line for prayer, submitting gracefully to his Sustainer and I can't help wonder at the Mercy and Providence of God. Where would we be without Him?
