Meeting with God in conversation each day is good for the soul. What is good for the soul is also good for the mind and body and it is perhaps for this reason that humans have sought an intimate relationship with the creator for millennia. May your Noontimes journey bring you the joy and peace of knowing God’s goodness, love and mercy. And so we pray these ancient words . . .
Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. Take to your heart these words enjoined on you today. Drill them into your children. Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. Amen.
