Barth: an uprising

Monday, November 23, 2015
    Commemoration of Clement, Bishop of Rome, Martyr, c.100
    After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
    —Acts 4:31 (NIV)
    To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968)
    See also Acts 4:31; Judg. 16:28; 1 Sam. 8:6; Dan. 6:10; Jon. 2:1; Matt. 26:42; Luke 5:16; Jas. 5:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may You lift the world out from its bondage.
