The message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. We thank you, O God, for the gift of salvation and the call to faithfulness. By your Spirit, give us the faith we need to do what is required of the faithful; to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with you, Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen.
