Here's how it works: I will post the week's stuff here on the night before it starts and also under the Refresh 2012 tab. That way, if you don't feel like printing, you can easily find what you want.
Use these resources however you like. Together we can do this...whatever this is. Whatever it is, it will be different for each of us, so feel free to share what God is showing you.
I am praying for us!
Week 1: August 22-26
Give us Strength
Focus Verse (Memory Verse)
But Ruth said, “Do not press me to leave you or to turn back from following you! Where you go, I will go; Where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die— there will I be buried. May the Lord do thus and so to me, and more as well, if even death parts me from you!”
Dear God, Creator and Parent. Meet us here in this time and give us strength. Spirit, fill us as we ask for your blessing and direction. Jesus the Christ, give us grace to be vessels of your perfect love. Protect our minds and hearts as we open them to you. Fill us with the courage to ask to see our neighbors and to be seen by them. Give us the grace and strength to ask to see your face. Teach us to love and to hope and to live fully and abundantly. May your Kingdom come. Amen
