Good Morning, Ministry Partner!

November 29, 2019

Be Encouraged by God's Word
Now who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? But even if you do suffer for doing what is right, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear, and do not be intimidated, but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence. Keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who abuse you for your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God’s will, than to suffer for doing evil.

  - 1 Peter 3:13-17, NRSV

Wisdom from Fellow Pilgrims 
The only opportunity you will ever have to live by faith is in the circumstances you are provided this very day: this house you live in, this family you find yourself in, this job you have been given, the weather conditions that prevail at the moment.     

        - Eugene Peterson

Pray Together with Us

Go forth with us, O Lord, from this your holy house; cast about us the fence which the evil one cannot pass, and clothe us in the armor which his darts cannot pierce. Send down upon us your love and light and calm, wherein, as in a cloud, we may continually dwell and worship you for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 William Ewart Gladstone
