Verse of the Day: Psalm 32:4-6

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them. - Psalm 32:4-6 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail

They believe that they must be the executors of the transformation. They talk about the people, but they do not trust them." - Paulo Friere Paulo Friere + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail

Verse of the Day: John 15:12-15

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. - John 15:12-15 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
