SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Something new is upon us,
and yet nothing is ever new.
We are alive in a fearsome time,
and we have been given new things to fear.
We've been delivered huge blows but also
huge opportunities to reinforce or reinvent our will,
depending on where we look for honor and how we name our enemies.
The easiest thing is to think of returning the blows.
But there are other things we must think about as well, other dangers we face.
A careless way of sauntering across the earth and breaking open its treasures,
a terrible dependency on sucking out the world's best juices
for ourselves—these may also be our enemies.
The changes we dread most may contain our salvation.
Small Wonder - Barbara Kingsolver - 2002
INTERFAITH PRAYER OF THE DAY
I beg Forgiveness of Allah, my Lord
From all the sins which I have committed,
Consciously and unconsciously,
Hidden and evident.
I repent and ask forgiveness for all my sins
Of which I am aware or not aware.
You are the Knower of all things unknown
And the Veiler of disgrace,
The Forgiver of sins.
There is no power or strength besides
Allah, the Exalted, The Supreme.
seeking forgiveness - Dr. Lila Fahlman
