In the morning let us prepare for the new day with the words of the New Testament and in the evening let us reflect on how God moves in the lives of his people.
Morning Reading from the New Testament: Matthew 3
John the Baptist was preaching, “Repent, the kingdom is near!” Jesus was baptised by John. A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 6-8
Humankind corrupted the earth with evil. God decided to destroy them. He told Noah to build an ark to be saved from the flood.
Noah and his family went into the ark with two of each creature. It rained for forty days and forty nights and the earth was covered.
The flood abated. Noah sent out a raven and two doves. When the earth was dry God called them all out of the ark. Noah built an altar.
