(verse of the week)
The earth is the LORD’S, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
for He founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters. (Psalm 24.1,2)
(Prayer of the week)
Almighty and Loving God, thank you for the blessing of the universe and all that you created and the special blessing of our world. Help me to be a steward of all that you have blessed us with, and may I also steward each day of my life giving back to you by the way I use my gifts an talents. May your Spirit fill me and make me a new creation empowered by your grace and love. Fill me with your love, and may others see you in all I do, and give you thanks. Amen.
Blessings –Pastor TJ
(quote of the week)
“The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out,
Like shining from shook foil. . .
Oh, morning at the brown brink eastward springs--
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast
And with ah! Bright wings—Gerald Manley Hopkins, “God’s Grandeur"
