|WORDS FROM OUR LORD FOR TODAY|
When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. – James 3:3-5, 9-10

On Saturday the center of the sun will be directly over the equator at 8:54 p.m., marking the fall equinox. In the Northern Hemisphere, the sun will continue to get lower in the sky and days will become shorter until the winter solstice on Dec. 21st. The word equinox comes from the Latin words “aequalis” and “nox,” meaning equal night. On the autumnal (and the spring) equinox, day and night are both roughly 12 hours long over most of the world. Another equinox fun fact: On Saturday, the sun rises due east and sets due west for most of the world, except at the North and South Poles. Although some people claim that the autumnal equinox is the “official” start of fall, there is no administrative or political organization that actually designates that. Indeed, though astronomers say summer ends Saturday, meteorologists and climatologists say summer ended Aug. 31, the final day of the three hottest months of the year (June, July and August.) – USA Today Sept. 18, 2018
