Taking hold of life



Matthew 13:31-33; Luke 17:20-21

Prayer for the day:
Nurturing God, we all come to you with our pasts and histories. Foster in us the courage to burst forth with renewed vigor to look beyond our past and into the future so that we can truly draw out the kingdom that is among us.

Question for reflection:
What is the story of you roots? Where are your branches stretching to?

~ Sarah Neher, National Youth Conference Coordinator
