17 October 2017 – Verse & Voice – Sojourners 

October 17, 2017

verse of the dayHow does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help? – 1 John 3:17

voice of the day

On this International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, let us recognize that extreme poverty anywhere is a threat to human security everywhere. Let us recall that poverty is a denial of human rights. For the first time in history, in this age of unprecedented wealth and technical prowess, we have the power to save humanity from this shameful scourge. Let us summon the will to do it. – Kofi Annan

prayer of the day

God of the impossible, foster in us a spirit of emapthy and love, to be not passive, but active in answering to those in need. Instill in us the desire to do your will.
