Sojourners Verse and Voice – 10 August 2021

August 10, 2021
Verse of the day 
People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” 

– Luke 18:15-16
Voice of the day 
The great events of this world are not battles and elections and earthquakes and thunderbolts. The great events are babies, for each child comes with a message that God is not yet discouraged with humanity, but is still expecting goodwill to become incarnate in each human life. 

– Marian Wright Edelman, “Standing Up for Children” (2003)
Prayer of the day 
God, as we send our children back to school, help us to love and respect and act now to protect them all. 

– Prayer adapted from Marian Wright Edelman
