Spiritual Practice Suggestion
One day this week, go to a public place where you don’t normally go (e.g. a different part of the city, riding an alternative bus route, attending an event where you don’t know anyone). What was it like for you to be an outsider? In places with which you are more familiar, who might be considered outsiders? Reflect on your experience of being an outsider and an insider.
May we drink from the deep well of your grace, O God,
and know the good news that everyone matters.
May our thirsty souls partake of your living water,
so you would teach us to act like everyone matters.
