Scripture for the Month 

Psalm 26 – The Prayer of an Innocent Person.

1 Show that I am right, Lord! I stay true to myself, and I have trusted you without doubting. 2 Test my thoughts and find out what I am like. 3 I never forget your kindness, and I am always faithful to you. 4 I don’t spend my time with worthless liars 5 or go with evil crowds. 6 I wash my hands, Lord, to show my innocence, and I worship at your altar, 7 while gratefully singing about your wonders. 8 I love the temple where you live, and where your glory shines. 9 Don’t sweep me away, as you do sinners. Don’t punish me with death as you do those people who are brutal 10 or full of meanness or who bribe others. 11 I stay true to myself. Be kind and rescue me. 12 Now I stand on solid ground! And when your people meet, I will praise you, Lord

Hymn of the Month

“I Would Be True”

1. I would be true, for there are those who trust me; I would be pure, for there are those who care; I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;

I would be brave, for there is much to dare.

2.  I would be friend of all—the foe, the friendless; I would be giving, and forget the gift; I would be humble, for I know my weakness; I would look up, and laugh, and love, and lift.

Inspirational Messages
From Rev. Nancy Hazzard


Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, "The Lord is king!" —
1 Chronicles 16:31




When I think of the vastness of the earth and the diversity of those who inhabit it, I am in awe. It is such a blessing to live in this diverse world and explore countries, peoples, customs, and cultures.

I am a citizen of the world with the privilege to treat the planet and its people with respect. I encourage peace, beginning in my neighborhood and expanding to include my community, country, continent, and the entire world.

Each person can make a difference.

As I hold peaceful thoughts and act peacefully, I am an example of honor and inclusion. My example has a ripple effect upon every person with whom I come in contact. I respect all cultures and ideas and promote peace and understanding.
