Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him and He will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.
~ Psalm 37
This wonderful passage was recently read in the most extraordinary way to millions of people.
The comedian and talk show host James Cordern invited his father, Malcolm, a Bible salesman, to come onto his show to teach President Trump how to hold a Bible. Apart from the comedic/political points, there was an incredible moving point at the end where Malcolm read Psalm 37, and James was visibly moved and thanked his father. May he, and others, come to know the Father. Watch it here –
“For there are but few things which we phrase correctly.
Many things we phrase badly, yet what we wish to say is understood.”
(some encouragement for us as we pray)
1. Argentina – The number of confirmed cases is 27,560, with 735 deaths of those with Covid-19.
A strict lockdown has been lifted – and cases have begun to rise – especially in Buenos Aires.
2. Western Australia – now has had 601 (up 10 from a week ago), with 9 deaths (up 0).
In Australia there have been 7,276 (up 7). There have been 102 deaths (up 0).
6,744 people have recovered (up 24). 20 are in hospital (3 in ICU).
1,679,594 people have been tested, with 0.4% being positive.
3. One marcher on the Melbourne BLM march has been found to have Covid-19. This is a significant development and could hold back the reopening of Australian society. The marches are estimated to have cost $1 billion in terms of reopening the economy. More marches are planned.
4. One probable side effect of the rush for a vaccine is that other vaccines and treatments for different illnesses could be developed
5. For those who face a hard time at work and are struggling with their jobs, thinking of a career change.
A Prayer of Repentance:
O Almighty and most merciful God, of Your bountiful goodness keep us, we beg You,
from all things that may hurt us; that we, being ready both in body and soul,
may cheerfully accomplish those things that You would have us do;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Book of Common Prayer)
A Prayer of Thanksgiving:
O Lord, we praise You that the salvation of the righteous comes from You, O Lord;
You are our stronghold in time of trouble.
You, O Lord, LORD help us and deliver us;
You deliver us from the wicked and save us,
because we take refuge in You.
We praise and magnify Your holy name.

Activists within the pro-LGBT Methodist Church claimed Edwards’ words “distressed” co-workers. They accused the father of five of engaging in behaviour that “was extremely damaging”, arguing that he was also potentially hurting the organisation’s “business plan”.
This is not a tit-for-tat war, in which one side’s casualties justify or validate an equal number of deaths on the other side. On Israel’s side, this is a war for security and survival, while for Hamas, it is a war to eliminate Israel.
Israel can commit particular acts that are immoral, without becoming morally equivalent to Hamas, in the same way that Western Allies could commit morally problematic acts (e.g. Dresden), without becoming morally equivalent to the Nazis.
After 2000 years of virulent holy hatred, Judeophobia, genocide, expulsions, blood libels, ghettoisation, rejection, ridicule and demonisation, the world has not been able to cast off the shackles of innate antisemitism.
