I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you. - John 13:34
For who do you know that really knows you, knows your heart? And even if they did, is there anything they would discover in you that you could take credit for? Isn't everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God? So what's the point of all this comparing and competing? You already have all you need. You already have more access to God than you can handle. 1 Corinthians 4
This week's readings and last week's Agape Latte message from Dr. Glass remind us that God is loving, forgiving, and with us through every moment. Read this week's reflection by Mary Cardie '24

September 1 - October 4 is the Season of Creation
This week's environmental challenge:*
Emphasis on Community involvement and participatory action to care for creation at the local, regional, national and international levels: promote advocacy and people’s campaigns, encourage rootedness in local territory and neighborhood ecosystems, etc.
- Sign a petition, call, or send a letter/e-mail to an elected official on an environmental issue each day/week of the Season of Creation.
- Research local environmental issues your community faces and take actions each day to get a community group together to create change.
- Plan and implement a weekly litter pilgrimage in which a group of people walks around picking up trash while also stopping periodically to pray (only do this if physical distancing is possible for your group).
