&amp;#160;To lift up the hands in prayer gives God glory, but a man with a dung fork in his hand, a woman with a slop-pail, gives him glory too.&amp;#160; &amp;#160;He is so great that all things give him glory if you mean they should. &amp;#160;</p> <p> Gerald Manley Hopkins</p> <p> &amp;#160;</p> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 09:20:00 -0500 http://www.oursaviourslutheran.org/modules/imblogging/post.php?post_id=112 By Us http://www.oursaviourslutheran.org/modules/imblogging/post.php?post_id=107 <p> Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.</p> <p> John Stott</p> <p> &amp;#160;</p> Fri, 14 Apr 2017 04:20:00 -0500 http://www.oursaviourslutheran.org/modules/imblogging/post.php?post_id=107
