After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: …Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.  —Joshua 1:9

We are most deeply asleep at the switch when we fancy we control any switches at all.  —Annie Dillard, Holy the Firm, 1977

On the days when we so deeply long to manage, direct, preside over, guide, and steer, call us instead toward you, so that we might yield to your holy lead, where you are the one who can usher, escort, pilot, and shepherd us along the way. Amen.  —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
