Dear Friends in Christ,

“Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above…” (James 1:17)

What a gift it is to see God’s people using the gifts they’ve been given. On Sunday evening, we gathered at Zoar Lutheran Church in Perrysburg, for a Performance Arts Event. The gifts of God’s people filled that sacred space. What a delightful and inspiring evening! Thank you, dear God, for the beautiful gift of artists, musicians, dancers, sewers, photographers, designers, gazers, and dreamers.

Now see if you can figure out the Bible verse captured by the photo below.

During this Year of Scripture, we will aspire to grow as Christian disciples through three distinct practices:
