Questions to go Deeper
SHINE LIKE STARS
When the Christmas season comes to an end, the decorations come down and the lights are stored away for another year. Even though the lights are put away, followers of Jesus are committed to continue to shine HIS light with the world. Shine On! This week’s scriptures refocus our attention on what it means to carry the Jesus’ light. Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them. View here.
