AscensionFeast of the Venerable Bede, Priest, Monk of Jarrow, Historian, 735Commemoration of Aldhelm, Abbot of Mamsbury, Bishop of Sherborne, 709
    His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
    -- 2 Peter 1:3-7 (ESV)

    Life is at its noblest and its best when our effort cooperates with God’s grace to produce the necessary loveliness.
    ... William Barclay (1907-1978), The Letters of James and Peter, p. 355 [1976]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your light shines into the darkest places of my life.
