To each one the manifestation of the 
Spirit is given for the common good. - 1 Corinthians 12:7 (NIV)

My sister, Bev, is a retired English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, and I am a retired nurse. We have recently 
become involved in meeting the needs of refugees. Trying to meet their needs can be hard work, but we remember that we are following Jesus by serving others....

Today's Prayer
Thank you, God, for giving us gifts and talents. Help us to use them to honor you. Amen.

A Breath of Fresh Air

"Discovery Weekend (The Upper Room spiritual formation weekend experience for middle schoolers) is a breath of fresh air for the youth ministry in local churches. I was impressed with the way it invited both spiritual maturity and committed leadership from our older youth as they served. Of course, our younger youth received so much as well."
