Collect for the 8th Sunday after Trinity:

Lord God,

your Son left the riches of heaven

and became poor for our sake:

when we prosper save us from pride,

when we are needy save us from despair,

that we may trust in you alone;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY

 Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply.  Speak kindly.  Leave the rest to God.

Exercise daily—walk with the Lord!

The church is a hospital for sinners, not a rest home for saints.
