[The body is] weak when it’s put into the 
ground, but it’s raised in power. - 1 Corinthians 15:43 (CEB)

I live and garden in the desert year-round. Among the things I grow are sugar snap peas. From the time I plant them, the peas will thrive for eight months and produce for more than five months. The plants climb on trellises to a height of more than eight feet....

Today's Prayer
Creator God, thank you for the transformation hidden in a seed and for the wonder of what that transformation means to us — new life with you. 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.
