Returning and rest

2015 COVER

Isaiah 30:15-18

In what ways do we find ourselves running away from that which we know? Do we have patience with ourselves in acknowledging God’s accompaniment and faithfulness with us?


O Lord, you are the Source of what is right and true, and you are home. Thank you for your guidance and for your strength. Please have patience with us as we wander and run instead of looking to you and your direction.

~ Kristen Hoffman, Coordinator, CCS and National Junior High Conference
