Sojourner Magazine's Verse & Voice for Wed. July 29, 2009

For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

- Hosea 6:6

The matter is quite simple. The Bible is very easy to understand. But we as Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined.

- Søren Kierkegaard,
Danish philosopher, theologian, and ethicist (1813-1855)

We pray for all first-generation college students. Lead them to supportive campus ministries, Loving Spirit, and may congregations offer hospitality to those seeking higher education
