Today, we look at a Day 5 text from this year’s summer curriculum, “Transformed Community: God’s Agent of C.H.A.N.G.E.”
Prayer: Loving God, there is nothing to compare to you. You are our hope and our joy. This day we dedicate to you that in big and small ways we may love and serve you and be a blessing to all those that come into our circle. In your will, we pray to be. Amen.
Reading: Micah 7:18-20 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: This text makes me think of “There’s Only One Holy One” by Caedmon’s Call.
Here is the chorus:
There's only One who never fails
To beckon the morning light
There's only One who set loose the gales
And ties the trees down tight
When all around my soul gives way
He is all my hope and stay
There's only One, only One Holy One
Songwriters: Mary J. Blige / Rodney Saulsberry / Trevor Smith

If you have a moment, look it up or think about a song or hymn that you love that makes you think about the singular supremacy of our Savior!
