We have been asked to post the following invitation:
In the The Covenant, the Lord asks us 2 important questions:
Do you agree to assist all others who covenant to likewise accept this standard to
govern their lives to keep the Lord’s will, to succor those who stand in need, to lighten the burdens of your brothers and sisters whenever you are able, and to help care for the poor among you?
And do you covenant to seek to become of one heart with those who seek the Lord
to establish His righteousness?
Taken together, this includes efforts on our own part to help others come to be of one heart.
This issue goes well beyond the Guide & Standard mess. It affects many of us in many different parts of our lives:
And he also saw other multitudes pressing their way towards that great and spacious building. And it came to pass that many were drowned in the depths of the fountain, and many were lost from his view, wandering in strange roads. (NC 1NE 2:12)
In the hope of turning our focus in the right direction and perhaps bringing our hearts a bit closer together, I'm inviting anyone interested to participate in a general fast this coming Sunday, Jan. 14, and a united prayer at 2 p.m. MST on that day for the Lord to help us become of one heart. We can also keep a prayer in our heart throughout the day for the same purpose.
This can be an opportunity for those who feel they are ready to press forward to pause and show charity to those who are struggling with their personal stumbling blocks so that we can all move forward together with one heart.
A sister in the Covenant
