My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you? (see previous Advent daybook 2016 posts here)
all readings for today: Psalm 124; Isaiah 54:1-10; Matthew 24:23-35
prayer for the day:
Listen to Handel's Messiah. As you listen, pray for all of those seeking justice in our world right now. Include yourself.
Here's some helpful information as you pray for those at Standing Rock Reservation, SD: Why Christians Should Stand With the Standing Rock Sioux
And, from our friend Hilary, a suggestion to give toward ministry in Standing Rock:
If you would like to give to ongoing good work in Standing Rock, the Good Heart Community Center, run by the mother of my friend and ministry colleague Bobby GreyEagle, provides affordable clothing and meeting spaces for recovery meetings, youth meetings, a library, and more. It really needs some repair (no heat in some places, structural issues, mold, etc.) paypal.me/bobbygreyeaglemin As Bobby said, "Good Heart was here before the protests, and it will be here after they're over."
