Today, we continue that print tradition — the Moravian arrives in members’ homes ten times per year — while also making it available online through Issuu.com.

The Lord said to Moses, “All the people among whom you live shall see the work of the Lord.” Exodus 34:10

 

Many who heard him were astounded. They said, “Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary?” Mark 6:2–3

 

How amazing are your ways, O God. We marvel at your designs. In Christ you have shown us the awesome, divine presence that is ours. May our heavenly humanity be a witness to your earthly divinity. Amen.
