The Sabbath Is for Merciful Acts
Luke 14:1-6 NRSV
Then he said to them, “If one of you has a child or an ox that has fallen into a well, will you not immediately pull it out on a sabbath day?” (Luke 14:5)
No excuses! Be attuned to the cries of one who needs your help WHENEVER.
In keeping with our Connectional Theme of Environmental Justice in 2018, in the months of June to August our prayer focus will be on “Greening of the home and sanctuary”.
In the month of June, ask God’s forgiveness for any wastage of energy or other resources in which you knowingly or unknowingly engage. Make a commitment to assess your energy sources such as light bulbs, etc. in your church, home, or office and implement changes to improve energy use. Commit to gathering and sharing knowledge on ways to be better stewards of environmental and human-made energy resources.
