Trip Theme: To Experience & Share the Peace of Christ.
Over the next month, we will be learning exactly what peace means in four different aspects of life. We will be focusing on first experiencing peace in these four ways in our own life, so that we can then share all the aspects of peace with those we are going to serve in Texas.
To begin with, we're going to spend this week dialoguing with God about peace. First we will read what He tells us in His Word about peace, and then we will respond back to Him in prayer asking Him to give us the peace He promises in different ways in our lives.
We are a team. Share with your teammates how it is that you are praying for God's peace in your life each day. Doing so will allow others to pray for you, and you to pray for the others in your group.
Find a consistent time each day where you can spend time with the verse given and in prayer. For some of you that will be in the early morning, others at lunch time, and still others right before bed. Post a sentence or two each day, and then encourage others in your group by giving encouraging comments on their posts.
The silicone bracelets are there to remind you to do this each day.
Remember, you are counting on your teammates, and they are counting on you.
Here's our focus verse for this week, but really this is the goal for the next six weeks:
Let us make every effort to do what leads to peace and to build each other up. - Romans 14:19
