The Lord’s eyes watch the righteous, his ears 
listen to their cries for help. - Psalm 34:15 (CEB)

During the week, my wife cares for two of our grandsons. At two years old, the younger one, Colton, still struggles with his vocabulary so that even when he can find a word to use, he also cries out. He especially loves his toy trains and cries if he can’t...

Today's Prayer
Dear Father, thank you for hearing and answering our cries for help. Amen.

Cultivate community with young adults

“For the past two years, I have used Journey to the Table to cultivate community with young adults in Nashville. The rhythm of Journey to the Table with preparation, prayer, listening, silence, and discussion created space for young adults to reflect, grow in their faith, and build relationships. The topics are extremely relevant for emerging adulthood, and the activities and schedule are adaptable for different contexts. We invited the participants to continue the relationships built at Journey to the Table through year-round life groups and affinity groups. I’m looking forward to next year’s Journey to the Table – it truly sets a table for building relationships and growing in our faith.” Learn more about Journey to the Table.
