November in The Upper Room Chapel

November 6, 2019 by Beth A. Richardson

TO LIVE BY God's call means making ourselves available to the power of the Spirit within us. When we become available to the Spirit, our personal stories become part of God's great story of redeeming love, despite our weaknesses. —Kara Lassen Oliver

AN ALTAR, A PEW, A SEAT ON THE BUS, a kitchen table: all become holy places when we confess before God. Today, in this holy place, God meets us, hears us and forgives us. In this holy place, God empowers us with genuine love to share with a hurting world. Be for God, a holy loving people.

-Kwasi I. Kena
