Notes from Summer

Wow this summer has flown by! I keep meaning to write another blog post, but the days keep slipping away from me. So, I finally made myself sit down to write. I just want to share a few things that I’ve discovered/learned this summer.

First up was the Virginia Annual Conference. Here is the link to all of the information from Conference – – feel free to explore and check it out and let me know if you have questions. But, I highly recommend you find time to watch this video – Opening Session-Thursday, June 16 (Time marker: 4:58:11). It is a little long, but there is some great stuff in here. Bishop Lewis preached a wonderful opening worship sermon, and I also highly recommend the Lay Leader address by our Conference Lay Leader Martha Stokes. But gave me great food for thought and inspired me.

This summer I also discovered a new-to-me devotional app. It is called Everyday Sanctuary, and I have found it meaningful to use. The app gives us a new breath prayer to pray each day and encourages us to spend time in contemplation. We have space to record 5 things we are grateful for each day and to write what we need God’s help with. This is a wonderful way to deepen our prayer life and our connection with God. I hope you check it out! –

Have you discovered anything new this summer to help you connect better with God? What has inspired you? Please share and let me/us know!
