Daily Brief: Thursday, July 2, 2015

Second to last business day of the convention.

Wednesday will be hot, hot, hot!

Today we remember Washington Gladden 1836-1918

Washington Gladden is best remembered by historians as one of the founding fathers of the Social Gospel Movement which has been described as the most distinctive American contribution to the world of Christianity. This Christian Reform Movement arose as a response to the unprecedented and profound social problems that rapidly multiplied in Americas’ fast growing, newly industrialized cities during the last decades of the 19th century. Throughout his ministerial career Gladden remained on the front lines of those who spoke out often and knowledgeably about issues of labor, poverty and race that threatened the very fabric of American society.  From The Washington Gladden Society

Prayer for today:

Almighty God our heavenly Father, you declare your glory and show forth your handiwork in the heavens and in the earth: Deliver us in our various occupations from the service of self alone, that we may do the work you give us to do in truth and beauty and for the common good; for the sake of him who came among us as one who serves, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
