Reading: John 20:19-23 (Click to read text)
In today’s text, the resurrected Jesus breaths on the disciples and gives then the Holy Spirit. Here the Greek word for spirit is pneuma. When Jesus first introduces the Holy Spirit to the disciples in chapter 14 of John He uses the Greek word parakletos. I was reminded recently that the basic meaning of that word is “come along side another.”
Today is the first full day of staff training at Camp Mount Luther. We need to know that God comes along beside us. We pray that you know that God is by your side this day.
The summer staff of Camp Mount Luther asks for you prayers today. Please pray that we experience God coming along side each of us and all of us as a staff.
The Summer Staff of Camp Mount Luther: Chad, Charlene, Jim, Arthur, Maria, Adam, Ryan, BrookeLynn, Nicole, Ty, Olivia, Becca, Amber, Samantha, Tara, James, Zachary, Kyle, Ed, Althea, Maura, Ann, Kathryn, Wanda, Tom, and Linda.
