Share the Light
The heavens declare the righteousness, power, and beauty of the Lord (Psalm 50:1-6). Let the strong faith of the prophets be an example to us (2 Kings 2:1-12) and the hope of the resurrection (Mark 9:2-9) encourage us as we share the light of the gospel (2 Corinthians 4:3-6). -Thomas Oden, Ancient Christian Devotional
Psalm of the Week
Scripture Readings
The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets...God shines forth. Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him...And the heavens proclaim his righteousness...

Practicing Prayer
O God, who before the passion of your only-begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.  -The Book of Common Prayer
