To close, I wanted to offer you a piece of this week’s lectionary that I found particularly meaningful.
1 [a] I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. 2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. 3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. — Psalm 34: 1-4
As always, Let me know if you have any questions.
Hope to see you soon!
