Invites Disciples to a new year and a new vision
Where is God leading us in 2021 and beyond?
A new collection of 52 weekly reflections on Isaiah 35, the hallowed passage about finding new life, new faith, and new prophetic vision in challenging times and places, invites you to pray on that question as you walk alongside other Disciples toward a new vision for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Written by leaders of the Disciples general ministries and edited by Disciples historian and Old Testament scholar Rev. Dr. Rick Lowery, Wellsprings of Hope: Prayers for a Prophetic New Vision for Disciples speaks of finding water in the desert, strength and transformation through our faith, and the journey God calls us to undertake as we see a new way of being Disciples, together, for the new year and beyond.
“For Disciples across the country to focus on the same scripture, the same prayer, the same hopes and dreams for what Disciples can be — it’s a powerful idea,” says Lowery, president of the Disciples of Christ Historical Society and editor of Wellsprings of Hope, about the devotional.
