The Collect Today begins “Stir up, O Lord,” - “Stir up.”
From Proverbs we are reminded that the Lord is the maker of all, and challenges all to be generous.
Psalm 125 affirms that those who trust in the Lord will forever stand fast.
And the Psalm also asks for justice for those who good and true of heart.
Both Proverbs and James today speak to us about: the rich and the poor; about names; and how we treat one another.

Listen to God’s Word and be stirred up in your hearts and minds.
