I was recently asked to speak at faculty devotions held weekly at my former elementary, middle, and high school. I was asked by my mother who teaches first grade at Whitinsville Christian School, and who’s turn to prepare devotions was approaching. The assignment was rigged. Reflect on two passages from scripture: the year long theme verse, Romans 12:5, “…one body, many members…” and the theme verse for December, John 1:14, “The Word became flesh…”, AND share a couple stories from Ghana. Oh yea… there is about a ten minute time limit… The following is about what I said.
While I was in Panama a couple weeks ago our group held devotions every night. I was given the privilege to lead devotions on the last night. Upon preparing for this time, I wanted to tie some experiences and feelings we had all shared together as group durring the week. I decided to share 1 Corinthians 12:12-26. The following are notes from what I shared and the conversation which ensued.
