Writing Group Joy

I just have to give some shout outs to God!

Our writing group, 1st Writes, is just bursting with the holy spirit! Pam started the group three years ago and while its always been inspiring, this year is just amazing. The seats are full, the discussion is lively, and the writing is plentiful.  It is a joy to watch God move in our group.  I am so thankful to be a part of it!

In addition to our normal meetings, our group decided it will publish an Advent Devotion Booklet for our congregation. It will have 24 devotions focused on Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. 

We were a little nervous at first, wondering if some of us would have to write multiple devotions just to get enough. We worried for nothing. When word got out, writers from all over the church signed up, filling every slot! 

I can't wait to see how God will work during Advent as the whole church reads the daily devotions. Our church has never done anything like this, so it is very exciting. 

Prayer: God, thank you for being a part of our writing group and a part of the Advent Devotions. Please fill us with the holy spirit and help us write the words you want. Use this booklet for your glory and purpose. Amen.
