3/14/18 Still again, our God, we rise and offer thanks for this day and the opportunity of our fellowship here this hour. Sustain and support those who are not so richly blessed and encourage us to listen and respond to their needs with compassion and sincerity. Amen
We sit and kneel to listen and pray. We stand to give thanks.
Mostly, we demand to be heard while we stand. Maybe even waving an arm, in your face.
But to kneel beside each other or even to sit calmly and quietly beside one, is not so “important”, we wrongly think.
A quiet friend is a blessing. A friend who prays beside me and with me, even though miles separate us.
Rise for giving thanks today. Be bold in praise.
Sit and pray today. Listening with your heart.
