Verse of the day
But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare

Voice of the day
When a city is wounded, / before it moans, before it kneels, / it draws a breath, and keeps it … / It becomes a windless forest.

Prayer of the day
Lord who rebuilds, teach us to labor for the welfare of the spaces and communities we find ourselves in.
