Labor Day 2018 by Steve Penley

I appreciate this newly painted canvas by Steve Penley because it depicts the sacred nature of human labor.

“If Labor Day is observed as it ought to be, the gospel of humanity will be understood by all men and women.” said Terence Vincent Powderly.

The first Labor Day celebration took place in New York City in 1882.

Today, let us honor the value of human labor not only in America but throughout the world with this prayer:

May the gracious care of the Lord be ours;

Prosper the work of our hands for us!

Prosper the work of our hands, amen.

Psalm 90
