Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding —Proverbs 3:5–6

Diana Butler Bass points out that the English word believe comes from ‘belieben’, which is from the German word for love. Instead of referring to something like “an opinion one holds to be true,” ‘belieben’ refers to something treasured or held to be beloved. What one believes is what has been invested with one’s love. —Amy Frykholm, Christian Century, January 26, 2015, Believe it or not: My struggles with the creed

Let us treasure you, hold you as beloved, O Divine Love. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
