SUPPER (Compline)


Epistle Reflection

By purity, patience and kindness,
by the Spirit and by our love,
and by our message of truth,
we show ourselves for what we are.

New Testament Reading - Spiritual endowment


11Teach these things and make sure everyone learns them well. 12Don’t let anyone think little of you because you are young. Be their ideal; let them follow the way you teach and live; be a pattern for them in your love, your faith, and your clean thoughts. 13Until I get there, read and explain the Scriptures to the church; preach God’s Word.

14Be sure to use the abilities God has given you through his prophets when the elders of the church laid their hands upon your head. 15Put these abilities to work; throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone may notice your improvement and progress. 16Keep a close watch on all you do and think. Stay true to what is right and God will bless you and use you to help others.
