The psalmist wrote, “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works.” - Psalm 139:14 (NRSV)

It’s that time again, and I am ready to begin another new year. I have the same hopes for this year as I did for the last one: exercise more, get more sleep, eat healthier food, work more when needed and work less when I can.
Yes, this year will...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, help us to remember that we are your beloved children and that we can spread that love to all your children. Amen.

Thought for the Day

God’s love frees me to celebrate life with gratitude.

To love myself more completely

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
