Dao De Jing Chapter 54 followed by 5 minutes of silence.

A good builder doesn’t destroy.

A good embracer doesn’t abandon.

Future generations would then be grateful to them forever.

By an individual’s progress – their De is then genuine.

By a household’s progress – their De then exceeds.

By the countryside’s progress – their De then increases.

By the city’s progress – their De is then productive.

By the world’s progress – their De is then sweeping.

With an individual – concentrate on the individual.

With a home – concentrate on the home.

With the countryside – concentrate on the countryside.

With the city – concentrate on the city.

With the world – concentrate on the world.

How is it possible for me to understand they are right with the world?

Because of these.

Poetry by Howard Kranz

Scripture Reading Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 by Greg Garman

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless. And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly numerous.”

Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations.  No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations.  I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.  I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.

God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.  I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.”
