Here is another look at this week's Epistle reading:
Reading: Romans 8: 12-25 (Click to read text)
Mondays at camp we live in hope. It is Advent…we hope for God to come into our lives. For some that is Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus centuries ago. For others that hope expresses itself by finding God present in our lives here and now. For still others, it may be the hope of living in God’s presence that is fulfilled only by death.
What is your hope today? To get a project completed? To reconcile with someone? To just sit and relax? To cook a wonderful meal? To go swimming? Play a round of golf?
I hope that whatever your hope is for today that God comes into your life in a marvelous way. Maybe a way that you have never thought of before. Something really new.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
--Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff.
