Brother, Give Us A Word is a daily meditation provided by the brothers of the Society of St John the Evangelist (SSJE or the “Cowley Fathers”). As we consider what we do in our Sunday Morning Forum consider today’s (10/21/11) “word.”
Listening to what God is saying to us in Holy Scripture, in our hearts as we pray and meditate, and as we hear other people speak about God, is important to us as we seek spiritual growth and understanding.
-Br. David Allen
