[Note: The cross with the Scripture above is on a memorial plaque at Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Site (which I gratefully had the chance to visit in November 2006) honoring Bonhoeffer, Canaris, Oster, and others who were executed here in April 1945]
thank you for your faithfulness to us as we begin a new year.
Deliver us from all that has been wearing us down and holding us back.
Give us a fresh vision of who you want us to be
and how you want us to live. Amen”
– Moravian Daily Texts 2007, p. 1
