Since I’m in Tupelo, MS this morning it seems only right that I should wear my Altar Press t-shirt for Morning Prayer.
But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will appear upon y’all.
Nations will stream to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawning. (BCP 87)
Whatever language you speak in, whatever nation you belong to, wherever your life has led you to, the Lord will rise over you.
If we’re true to our calling as members of Christ’s body, if we love one another as Christ has loved us and love our neighbors as ourselves, then we will reflect the “light to enlighten the nations” himself.
