Sojourners Verse and Voice – 29 August 2022

August 29, 2022

Verse of the day
And if I have prophetic powers and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.

– 1 Corinthians 13:2

Voice of the day
Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shining out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery.

– Wendell Berry, Hannah Coulter (2004)

Prayer of the day
Enlighten the eyes of our hearts, O Lord, so we may not only see and receive your mercy but also notice the places in our world where you call us to extend mercy. Amen.

– Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals

  1. Michael, thank you for posting this. I was intrigued by the book from which the prayer is taken and have now ordered it!
