It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Lectionary and Prayer for Labor Day

Amos 5:11-15; Psalm 2; Psalm 72:1-12; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13; John 6:5-14, 26-27

O God, you have bound us together in this life. Give us grace to understand how our lives depend
on the courage, the industry, the honesty, and the integrity of all who labor. May we be mindful
of their need, grateful for their faithfulness, though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Reinhold Niebuhr, UMBOW, 443).
