"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
I spurn with loathing your pilgrim-feasts;
I take no pleasure in your sacred ceremonies.
When you bring me your whole-offerings
and your grain-offerings
I shall not accept them,
nor pay heed to your shared-offerings
of stall-fed beasts.
Spare me the sound of your songs;
I shall not listen to the strumming of your lutes.
Amos 5:21-23 Revised English Bible
