FAITH5 Plus 1, 9/18/2016

Hey, Grace’rs,

We’re giving FAITH5 a small twist: FAITH5 plus 1. The plus 1 is a chance as individuals or as a family to perform a reckless act of grace throughout the week.

This week the plus 1 is to choose one thing this week that you will go without…a cup of coffee, desert, a bag of chips, etc. As you do that, pray for the hungry. And find a way to donate what you save to hunger or to a hungry person.

Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):

01ShareIcon Share… 1 high and 1 low.
02ReadIcon Read… Jesus said to them: You give them something to eat. (Luke 9:13, when the disciples asked Jesus to send the people home after a long day of listening to Jesus.)
03TalkIcon Talk… about this passage in light of your day…your high and your low. What thing are you facing today or tomorrow where you need the strength of Jesus to help you?
Pray… for each other.
Bless… each other with a word of affirmation. Make the sign of the cross on each other and say to each other: The LORD bless you and keep you.
