It is my prayer that this summer would offer you opportunities for rest and renewal in your relationship with Jesus. I am praying for you daily. I pray that the Spirit of Jesus Christ would continue to cultivate the fruit of Christlike character in you: his love, his joy, his peace, his patience, his kindness, his goodness, his faithfulness, his gentleness, his self-control. Do not be afraid in these uncertain times, friends, but continue to conduct yourselves with gentleness and gratitude. The Lord is near. The Lord is working. He is bringing all things together for his glory and for your good.

 

As you and your family enter into the summer months, you are invited to join with the CCA community in reading through the letters of Philippians and Ephesians. Each weekday in this space, there will be a song to sing, a text to read, a truth to remember, a prayer to offer, and an action to consider. Together, let’s adopt this daily rhythm of family worship so that we will be united in spirit and in mind, even if we continue to remain apart in body. 

 

Your servant in Christ,

Jason Lawrenz

CCA Chaplain
