Verse of the Day: Psalm 36:5-9

All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. - Psalm 36:5-9 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
