Verse of the day

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
Ezekiel 37:5 (NIV)

Voice of the day

We breathe together in ways seen and unseen. And though that makes us vulnerable, it also gives us common life. Without our God-given life-spirit, holy breath filling both our lungs and our souls, we are dry bones or zombies.

Julie Polter, Reviving Our Common Life In A World Struggling To Breathe

Prayer of the day

God, remind us of the common life we share, and the common breath that should support all. All of this may be the work of generations. But like all projects, it has to begin before it can be accomplished. Even as we mourn the dead and live in the tense uncertainty of rapid change, give us visions of life where flourishing is possible and present.
