God of wholeness, thank you for the shalom bringers who showed me your glory through the smiles on their faces and the touch of their hands. Help me to be a shalom bringer to one who might need your peace, wholeness, or healing today. Amen.

Today's Picture

I was honored to lead worship for several years at a retreat for adults living with HIV & AIDS. They were shalom bringers to me through their stories, their smiles, and their tears. I took this picture of the worship center at the retreat.


Who are the shalom bringers in your life?

Book of the Day

Forgiveness, the Passionate Journey

Flora Slosson Wuellner

Flora Wuellner is a wonderful writer and pastor, a healer by nature and vocation. This book on forgiveness is a precious gift to the world. Flora describes forgiveness in this way: "Forgiveness is not a goal to be reached or a summit to be attained. The road itself is the goal!" She is a gentle companion on the way of healing.

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.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
