Convener's Corner — June 2014

With the arrival of spring and the new life that God shows us through the sprouting plants, budding flowers, and the arrival of mosquitos, I am often reminded of one of the Bible's most often quoted verses and one of my favorites: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13) Reciting this verse gives energy and excitement; it adds a little bit more bounce into each step; it provides comfort; and it makes even the most difficult tasks seem doable. I would suggest that reciting this verse out loud each morning when you awaken will ensure that your day will start off in the right direction.

In Via de Cristo, we sometimes need that renewal and an extra spurt of energy as well. That is what our Renewal Groups are for and why we need to connect with other Christians on a regular basis. They can provide the support that we need.

As you go through the summer, please remember to keep Via de Cristo in your thoughts and prayers. We have teams who are preparing for weekends, we have Renewal Groups who are looking to serve, and we have weekenders who have been called. Via de Cristo does not get a summer vacation.

Blessings to each of you in the months ahead.
