Scripture
Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.  —James 1:17

Wisdom
In defense of stubborn hope especially now: I want to be part of a people who see the darkness, know it is real, and then, then, then, light a candle anyway. And hold that candle up against the wind and pass along our light wherever it’s needed from our own homes to the halls of legislation to the church pulpit to the kitchens of the world. —Sarah Bessey, Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith

Prayer
Let me light a candle anyway. Amen.—The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
