Daily Bread

From Today's Office
Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
Psalm 84:5
Most of all, to receive the Spirit that inspired Scripture we each need to learn to cultivate silence and stillness in our lives. We need to learn to be still. It was in stillness that deep listening led to illumined Scripture, and it is in deep listening today that our lives can be illuminated. —Amos Smith, Be Still and Listen, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Jesus, the crowds demanded a miraculous sign as proof of who you were, but you refused. May I hear your voice in the ordinary events of today and respond with faithfulness. Amen.
