What a blessing it is to serve God together in so many endeavors! We offer praises for what God has done, and is doing. We offer prayers for what God will yet do. We seek to learn, and fellowship, and serve according to Godâ€™s desire for us, and for our world. And we strive to be stewards of the things for which God has given us.
This booklet of devotions is a part of our current endeavor to provide for the long-term needs of our community through a capital campaign. It is an important part of this effort, because while raising capital funds is certainly a financial matter, it is even more of a spiritual effort. It involves the very spiritual opportunities of stepping out in faith, looking to the future, and discerning Godâ€™s mission for our church.
Whatever else you do, I want to encourage you to take in these daily readings over the course of the next few weeks. May they inspire you as you move through your day. May they bless you as you face important decisions. And may they remind you of the unremitting love of God for you, and for all of Godâ€™s children.
