"I ask pardon of the Great God. I ask pardon at the sunset, when every sinner turns to God. Now and forever I ask pardon of God. O Lord, cover us from our sins, guard our children and protect our weaker friends."

- A traditional prayer of the Bedouin people of the Arabian Peninsula, recited at sunset.

Prayeroftheday from Sojourners.com
We pray for single-parent families. May these parents receive the support they need, so as to fully provide, love, and nurture their children. Allow these families to experience true community, God, and may their lives be filled with joy and your sustaining love. Amen.

Quote of the day.
"I would invite all Latin people to do nothing for about two weeks so you can see who really, really is running the economy. Who cleans the sheets? Who cleans the toilets? Who babysits? I am here to give voice to the invisible." - Musician Carlos Santana, protesting Georgia's immigration law while accepting Major League Baseball's Beacon of Change award before the "Civil Rights Game" in Atlanta.
(USA Today)

"A religious community can attest to the Sacred as it experiences it. It cannot attest to the absence of the Sacred in other communities." Edward Farley. Thoughts???

This... is really awesome. Beautiful thought, that the sound of peace is made with the metal used for war. That the sound of freedom, played by so many black musicians whose ancestors weren't free, and white musicians who wished none of that had happened... was made using the same brass of the ultimate Powers of oppression. Wow. Thanks so much for doing this. And you sound AWESOME. I'm a fan (though I play a German horn)! Blessings, Kirk

Taps
Did you ever know there was a lyric to the military theme "Taps?" Check it out:
“Day is done
Gone the sun
From the hills
From the lakes
From the sky
Safely rest
All be well
God is nigh.
