Sunday, August 30. 14th Sunday after Pentecost. Return to your list of gratitudes begun the first week of July and review a few of them. How has your keeping this list changed you?
Words from the Word: Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
-James 1:17, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture with us using a guided meditation on Mark 7:14-15, 21-23. “It’s from the inside, from the human heart, that evil thoughts come.”
Spiritual Tools: Try this week’s spiritual practice: Listening to Our Hearts by Trevor Hudson.
