Daily Devotional

Friday, October 17

1 Corinthians 12:12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.

Reflection:

One of the marks of the Presbyterian Church is that of connectivity. Did you know that the First Presbyterian Church of Barre is, effectively, a sister church to worshipping Presbyterian communities in Barnet, Burlington, East Craftsbury, Graniteville, the Ryegates, and West Topsham? Moreover, there are many retired Presbyterian ministers within Vermont and we share a connection, via the Presbytery of Northern New England with all of them. We are diverse congregations yet our common mission of making God’s love known unites us like a magnet pulling us together across the state. By some work of God’s Spirit, we are both unique and connected.

 

Question for reflection:

Think of a time that you have had connections with Christian people beyond our local congregation. What insights into being one, being together did you glean?
