Our Primary Prayer focus for this week is on Christ’s work through his Word: Calming all hearts that are filled with fear, shame, pride, or grief. As we discover new ways to search the scripture together and care for our neighbor. As the Holy Spirit develops faith in children and youth – through family devotions and other means. For people and families to read from the Bible and pray together daily.
Our 2021 MCREST week will once again be held in our church building and it’s time to start getting ready! As usual we will be responsible for the daily needs of 30 women and children. The MCREST guests have been vaccinated. I will be visiting a church this week to learn new protocols put in place to ensure everyone safety.
The Bible teems with joyous, paradoxical truths. God is three in one. God is man. God dies on a cross. The God who visits His vengeance upon trespassers has mercy only on sinners. We die to live. We live to die. The sinner is righteous. The weak are strong.

On Sunday, we welcomed a group of campers from Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota. They have chosen to take a week of their summer break to serve in the great city of Detroit and we are so grateful for the help of these students over the week to come! They will be serving alongside community leaders on various projects. Some of these will include community cleanups and tree plantings! God has big plans for these hands and feet and we are ready to Let Love Lead.

This is my personal journey through the struggles of life battling depression and anxiety. It was when I spiraled and crashed, that my life actually began. In my pain, God gave me purpose. In my times of great loss, God gave me life. The journey was not easy, but it was worth every moment. I am sharing this with you, so you will know you are not alone. You have worth and value, exactly how you are and where you are in life, exactly AS IS.
