Sunday Prayer

A Prayer for Courage

Lord God,
you have called your servants
to venture of which
we cannot see the ending,
by paths as yet untrodden,
through perils unknown.
Give us faith
to go out with good courage,
not knowing where we go,
but only that
your hand is leading us
and your love supporting us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

NY Governor Orders Homeless to Find Shelter

Only If the temperature goes below freezing.
What if the homeless don't obey?
The order sent out by what media?
The homeless "Town Crier", that's the only one they have.
Just another thought: Is it legal?

Just some thoughts

Sunday Prayer

Loving God
             Above All Things

O God, who hast prepared for them that love thee
such good things as pass man's understanding:
pour into our hearts such love toward thee, 
that we, loving thee above all things, 
may obain thy promises,
which exceed all that we can desire;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Book of  Common Prayer; 1662

A New Year Begins

THE YEAR'S AT THE SPRING

    The year's at the spring
    And the day's at the morn;
    Morning's seven;
    The hillside's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven-
    All's right with the world!

Computer Age

Can we blame the moral decline on this technology?
Technology increased and morality decreased.
