Sojourners Verse and Voice – 16 May 2023

May 16, 2023

Verse of the day
It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives sleep to his beloved.

– Psalm 127:2

Voice of the day
The rejection of our hustle-based society is a rejection of the pressures of capitalism and colonization. When we do this, we move ourselves out of the “rat race” and into a more embodied natural rhythm that listens to the needs of our bodies and the ebb and flow of self-care, collective care, and human-centered thriving rather than profit-centered gain.

– Tara Teng, Your Body Is a Revolution: Healing Our Relationships with Our Bodies, Each Other, and the Earth(2023)

Prayer of the day
Lord, help us throw off the profit-centered mindset that entangles us. May we rest in the rhythms of collective care and human-centered thriving.
