Question for reflection:
When have you been surprised by the simplicity of God’s work?
Prayer for the day:
God of the named and unnamed, forgive us for the quest for fame and for fixing our eyes on the notable, for we know that you work in mundane ways to redeem the world. Open our eyes that we might look for your Son in the most humble of places that we might find in our neighbors the source of our salvation. Amen
~ Josh Brockway, Director for Spiritual Life and Discipleship
