Prayer for the day:
Jesus, help us to slow down and pay attention to what you’re doing around us, so that we may re-organize our lives and be ready for the good news that you are bringing to our neighborhood. Amen.
Question for reflection:
What new practices, patterns, or routines could you establish to help you “peel back the layers” and see your neighborhood with new eyes? Or what might you give up in order to make time to pay attention?
~ Tim Heishman, National Youth Conference Coordinator
