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
