Labor Day was created to honor organized labor, but I like to recognize all laborers—union members and non-union members, white collar and blue collar, employees and contractors, paid and unpaid—anyone who works. Entry level workers and professionals, unpaid volunteers and high-paid executives, company staff members and freelance workers—all contribute to benefit society as well as themselves. On this Labor Day, thanks and honor to all. May God bless each one.
ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, who declarest thy glory and showest forth thy handiwork in the heavens and in the earth; Deliver us, we beseech thee, in our several callings, from the service of mammon, that we may do the work which thou givest us to do, in truth, in beauty, and in righteousness, with singleness of heart as thy servants, and to the benefit of our fellow men; for the sake of him who came among us as one that serveth, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ~ 1928 Book of Common Prayer
