Praise     

Lauds (Traditional hour: dawn/waking up)

We greet the new day by praising the Creator.

Opening:

I begin this day with joy:
God is good.

Scripture

As Jesus came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!” Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.”

When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign that all these things are about to be accomplished?” Then Jesus began to say to them, “Beware that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name and say, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. This is but the beginning of the birthpangs.”

-Mark 13:1-8 NRSV

Meditation

How will I receive God’s goodness today? How is God calling me deeper into God’s faithful love?

Prayer

Holy Creator, help me to embrace this day with open arms and to share your good gifts with gladness and generosity. Amen.

Going Out

I begin this day with joy:
God is good.
