  Lectionary verses for February 3, 2013

Since, therefore, the children share flesh and blood,

he himself likewise shared the same things, so that
through death he might
destroy the one who has the
power of death, that is, the devil, and free those
all their lives were held in slavery by the fear of death.

                                 -Hebrews 2:14-15

Prayers for Peacemakers, January 30, 2013

Pray for six kidnap victims, their loved ones and their ELN
guerrilla captors in Colombia.  Pray that
the unarmed, the poor, women, farmers, people committed to social and
environmental health, may shape a just and peaceful future, as the power of
greed and guns wanes.
