Scripture: Psalm 100
Devotional: Thomas à Kempis
A person who cares nothing for praise or blame knows great inward peace…. Praise does not make you holier than you are, nor blame more wicked. You are exactly what you are, and cannot ever be any better or worse than that, in the eyes of God. Attend to what is really within you, then, and you will not care what others say of you. People look at externals, but God looks at the heart. They weigh actions; God knows your intent…. To feel no need of human support and assurance is a mark of inward confidence – of those who truly walk with God in their hearts.

Prayer: Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

Choir practice is every Wednesday at 5:15 P.M. If you love to sing the music of the church, come and join us. We have several members that don’t read music!
