This series of five devotions is designed to help you prepare for the Tenth Triennial Gathering, deepening your understanding of the All Anew theme and accompanying verses. Enjoy the meditative practice of coloring as part of the devotions.
ELCA pastor Melissa Bills, associate pastor at First Lutheran Church, Decorah, Iowa, wrote the five devotionals that accompany the theme verses. Read more.
Whether used in a congregational setting, at a synodical event or in the quiet of one’s home, these five devotions are important groundwork for women coming to the Tenth Triennial Gathering.
The theme verse in each devotion is based on The Message, a contemporary biblical paraphrase written by Eugene H. Peterson.
The devotions include:
Renewal of Creation (Psalms 104:30)
Renewal of Sight (Isaiah 43:19)
Renewal of Spirit (Romans 12:2)
Renewal of Hope (2 Corinthians 4:16)
Renewal of Life (Titus 3:4-5)
