Sunday, January 21 — Jonah 3:1–5,10; Psalm 62:5–12

I give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything. Psalm 138:2

Blessed Redeemer, on this holy day may our worship of you spill out of the sanctuary and into every aspect of our lives. May all that we do give testimony to your unifying love. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
