Summer of One Daily Devotional

Summer in Western New York is wonderful. And since our winters are challenging, we want to take advantage of all the opportunities to be outside, enjoying the sunshine. Gardens, boating, sports activities, hiking, picnics and vacations fill our spare moments. It is great.

But this flurry of activity can also unintentionally take us away from some of the important disciplines and practices that keep us strong spiritually. I have learned that when I ease up or allow my intentions to flow a different direction, I find myself stopping and saying, “Wow, it has been a long time since I touched my Bible or spent time in prayer or…”

This devotional, written by our staff and ministerial students, is intended to help us stay connected with each other on some level as we navigate our summer. It will focus each day on the teaching theme for the week. It will also serve as a reminder to pray for each other and encourage each other.

May our “Summer of One” bring glory to the One we love and serve, and also help us to “maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
