If you are following along, please post your thoughts, concerns, questions in the comments. I am hoping the experiment of “trying on” a Daily Office this week will allow us to engage much more deeply into the offices of Morning and Evening Prayer during our Christian Ed time on Sundays.
Psalm 101 today really spoke to me. It reminded me of advice I often share with others – get rid of the toxic people in your life!
“1 I will sing of mercy and justice; *
to you, O Lord, will I sing praises.
2 I will strive to follow a blameless course;
oh, when will you come to me? *
I will walk with sincerity of heart within my house.
3 I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; *
I hate the doers of evil deeds;
they shall not remain with me.
4 A crooked heart shall be far from me; *
I will not know evil.”
In the St. Simon’s Cycle of Prayer for Wednesday –Pray for our youth and children, pray for our SS teachers, nursery workers, and all who work with our young people. Pray for Children in Crisis and Opportunity Place. Pray for staff, teachers, and students of Elliott Point Elementary School.
