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

 

Focus

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
