As leaders in the congregation, it is my hope that this experience will help you grow in your own faith and this not just be an experience of unremitting work. Though, I’m sure at times your work in the church community may feel more draining than helpful to you. In an effort to help with this, for the year of 2019, I thought I would share with you a weekly devotion. I am taking them (with occasional modification and an occasional replacement) from a book called (appropriately): 52 Devotions for Church Leaders by Robert H. Ramey, Jr. The first is below, for your reflection. I pray you find it edifying.
