Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” - John 15:1-2 (NIV)
Fire destroyed the Bible camp’s main building, which housed the chapel, dining hall, and kitchen. One year later, I looked at the trees that had been in close proximity to the fire. Green leaves fluttered in stark contrast to scorched bark and dead, blackened branches. I could still see life...
What habits or attitudes will I ask God to prune from my life?

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
