Read John 1:1-14
The theme for your week at camp, Robes of Hope, really had two areas of focus. We had to consider who might feel vulnerable in our community and why. But we also had to consider ourselves what ways we might need to make ourselves more vulnerable – thinking about ways that we have maybe been wrong.
One of the greatest lessons God has offered our world about how our expectations may have been wrong was Jesus. When Jesus came as God’s presence on earth – the incarnation – he showed us that God’s love is a gift of God’s presence. In order to be the presence of Christ to others, we may have to consider what that means. We may need to look at new ways that we can share our love and our faith at home. We may need to be more vulnerable than we have been and may need to consider that we have more to offer and to learn in the communities we call home.
Who are some people that would partner with you in being God’s presence in your community?
God who is present among us, help us all to be willing to be your presence in the world and to feel your presence in places where we might not expect it.
