Today’s Sunday. Recently I thought I’d let the day slide and not publish anything new at Earthpages. After all, it’s virtually a one man show here and I have to take some time off to live!

But then I thought of something else. I usually receive the Eucharist on Sunday. And since I spend most of the week keeping an open mind to everyone else’s beliefs, I thought I’d devote this day (out of the 7) to something that I believe in. We’ll see if this sticks. I might make the “Sunday Reading” a weekly feature.

Luke 17:5-10

5 The apostles said to the Lord, โ€œIncrease our faith!โ€

6 He replied, โ€œIf you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, โ€˜Be uprooted and planted in the sea,โ€™ and it will obey you.

7 โ€œSuppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, โ€˜Come along now and sit down to eatโ€™? 8 Wonโ€™t he rather say, โ€˜Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drinkโ€™? 9 Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? 10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, โ€˜We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.โ€™โ€
