Verse for 2018

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.  Micah 6:8



Holiness must be demonstrated, not as internal consolidation within the community, but rather as the power to reach out to the stranger without losing one’s own footing in the tradition… [Holiness] means exercising profound, even godly, humility, opening oneself to learn something previously unimaginable about the fundaments of life with God—and to learn it from “the least of these.”    -Ellen Davis
