Daily Briefing

Daily Brief: Thursday, June 25, 2015

Wednesday will bring a high of 97 degrees, low humidity, and sunny skies.

Today we remember Moluag of Lismore Bishop, c.592

Moluag was an Irish missionary who came to Scotland about the same time as Columba and established a missionary community on the island of Lismore, Loch Linnhe, where the church of St Moluag subsequently became the seat of the bishopric of the Isles. He and his followers worked mainly in the Pictish areas. He was consecrated bishop and established other centers of mission at Rosemarkie on the Black Isle where, according to tradition, he died in the year 592. From Robert Atwell’s Celebrating the Saints

A prayer for today:
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel at The General Convention for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
