Today's Readings

Thursday, August 4, 2011 -- Week of Proper 13, Year One

To read about our daily commemorations, go to the Holy Women, Holy Men blog:

Today's Readings for the Daily Office (Book of Common Prayer, 978)
Psalms [83] or 145 (morning)      85, 86 (evening)
2 Samuel 11:1-27
Acts 19:11-20
Mark 9:2-13

Day off.  Didn't turn on the alarm.  Slept past 9:00.  Wonderful.

Here are the readings.  Interesting ones!  David, Bathsheba and Uriah is the first reading.  And the gospel reading is a good warm-up for this Sunday when we transfer the Feast of the Transfiguration.

Young people are often trapped in this type of cycle as well. They get caught in some petty crime or get speeding tickets and without the support of parents that have the money to hire a lawyer who would get them a suspended sentence. Once they have been to jail and been branded a criminal it is so tragic to watch them often descend into a life of petty crime and substance abuse.
