Sojourners Verse & Voice – 24 August 2018

August 24, 2018

verse of the day

God raises up the poor from the dust; [God] lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and on them [God] has set the world.

– 1 Samuel 2:8

voice of the day

Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot un-educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore.

– Cesar Chavez

prayer of the day

Almighty God, open our eyes to the injustice around us. Soften our hearts and empower us to act against the powers that seek to destroy and divide. Amen.
