Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith. - Galatians 6:10 (NRSV)
Saturday morning the phone rang, and a familiar voice asked, “Do you hoe gardens?” It was Verna, my 90-year-old widow friend. I was semi-retired with extra time on my hands, but I needed a few moments to think about her request. I worried that my hoeing skills weren’t good enough....

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
