New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Today's Reflection

INTEGRATING SPIRITUALITY and photography takes us on a powerful journey, which deepens the way we experience photography—whether a full day or a few minutes. The process we followed moved us from running out the door in search of the “magical perfect picture” to a day of receiving the gift of light sent our way through the eyes of the heart and soul. We finish the day with more than a series of pictures. We return home with a renewed sense of the Spirit’s companionship, a newly attuned eye to see God in the world, and a soul that has been fed by seeing the story God placed in front of us.

—Valerie K. Isenhower, Meditation on Both Sides of the Camera: A Spiritual Journey in Photography (Upper Room Books, 2012)
