Your Weather Forecast: A high of 94 with a higher chance of rain than the past couple of days. Pack an umbrella or a jacket – bonus for the jacket, which will keep you warm in the frigid convention hall!

A Prayer for the Day: O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
