What do you think about during your day? Does your mind race toward the future or live in the past? Thursday we will consider another option, meeting God in the here and now. Moody Bible Institute Chair of the Pastoral Studies Department will talk with us regarding the practice of living in the present. Be listening for strategies to mastering the art of living in the now and the benefits and opportunities that learning this will bring to our lives and relationships.
Reports last weekend of migrant children being detained in the U.S. with no access to basic hygiene items like soap, toothpaste or tooth brushes have many of us wondering how we can both speak out and take action on behalf of these little ones. Thursday we will talk with Matthew Soerens from World Relief who will share about this humanitarian crisis at the border and how we can help.
Ken's morning devotional comes from "100 Days of Character: Strong Roots for a Strong Life" by Stephen Arterburn
