Oops.

I accidentally ordered some books online this week. I didn't mean to!

(Haven't found a liturgical church here yet!)

(I think I'm going to do my research paper for spiritual formation on Julian of Norwich... So it really counts as a textbook...)

(...I just really like Brueggemann?)

Whoops.
(Amazon and your lame one-click button. Horrible wretched marketing scheme.)

Memory verse for the month: "But the fruit of the spirit is... self-control." Galatians 5:22-23.
Working on it. Hm, I wonder if there are any good books on it available...

Haha! Blaming it on the one click, when you bought 3 books. :) Funny person.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.

Amen.
