"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."

Scripture Passage for the Day
You are not fasting today so as to have your voice reach on high. Can such a fast be the kind I choose -- a man to bow down his head like a rush, to lie in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call fasting, or an acceptable day to the LORD? Is not this the fast I have chosen: to loosen the bonds of wickedness; to undo the bands of the yoke; to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and to take the outcast poor into your home; not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then shall your light break forth lilke the dawn, and your healing shall follow speedily; your righteousness shall go before you, and the glory of the LORD shall follow your as your rear guard. Then you will call and the LORD shall answer; you will cry and He shall say, Here am I.
Is 58:4b-9a Berkeley Version
