Bible readings for today
you call us to love you with all our passion, prayer, intelligence and energy;
you call us to love our neighbor,
you call us to love ourselves.
Draw us closer to you,
that we may reveal your mercy, justice and peace.
Through Jesus Christ our Liberator,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
