So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth. - Job 5:16
Voice of the Day
To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives.
- Howard Zinn
Prayer of the Day
Lord, in times of disappointment and distress, we remember that you are a good God. When we feel overwhelmed by the darkness, help us to hold fast to the powerful light of hope.
(From Sojourners Verse and Voice, August 21)
