Sojourners – Verse and Voice – 23 July 2019

July 23, 2019

Verse of the day

Those who hear but don’t do the word are like those who look at their faces in a mirror. They look at themselves, walk away, and immediately forget what they were like. But there are those who study the perfect law, the law of freedom, and continue to do it. They don’t listen and then forget, but they put it into practice in their lives. They will be blessed in whatever they do.

– James 1:23-25 (CEB)

Voice of the day

We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.

– Fred Rogers

Prayer of the day

Awaken and sustain an understanding of ourselves as beings designed to take loving action, and not simply to sit and listen, growing numb to the sounds of a world in need. Call us out and call us in today, oh Christ whose Kin-dom is being built every day. Amen.
