From Today's Office
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 43:5
Change has much less to do with us than it does with the Spirit of God. Remembering that the Spirit works in us relieves us of the pressure that everything depends on us. —Notker Wolf, Faith Can Give Us Wings
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Lord of the church, in the love you bear toward our community, you give each a particular place of service in your kingdom. May we cherish our call, and serve you faithfully for the furthering of your kingdom among us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
