The Verse of the Day is the Community’s daily devotional. Through it each day, the members of the Community share a scripture reading, reflection, and prayer. Today’s Verse of the Day was written by Sr. Noreen Stevens. 

Mark 10:13-16 – “And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.” Mark 10:16

We pause today to hold Rhawnhurst Turning Point in prayer, celebrating “what love can do and dare” as they partner with their community and welcome youth in grades six and up to come as they are, serve and be served, learn, grow, and have fun while knowing that they are supported and cared for by other youth and adults. Rhawnhurst Turning Point is a non-profit joint mission venture started between Rhawnhurst Presbyterian and Redemption Lutheran Churches, located in the Rhawnhurst neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia.

God of Blessing, use our words and hands to invite and create safe and inspiring places for our neighbor, so that they know the strength of your arms wrapped around them in love and grace today and tomorrow. Amen
