Eighth Sunday after The Epiphany, Year A

"My soul rests in stillness and quiet." I'm still not sure if this is a statement or a prayer that it be so (the fact I'm wondering suggests the latter!), but these words from Psalm 131 echo through the ages. We have two songs for you to download and share this week:

  • Psalm 131:2a: "My Soul Rests" (pdf and bulletin graphic) - a simple refrain for the psalm or a meditative chant for centering and prayer.
  • Matthew 6:33: "Seek First" (pdf) - a rousing, counter-cultural call to focus on that which is truly important in life.
