The PEN reminds us of the importance of capturing stories, truth, and wisdom on paper. . . .
Write down our thoughts—whatever they are. Each day write about a time, place, or relationship where you felt God’s presence or absence.
—Kara Lassen Oliver, Passing It On: How to Nurture Your Children’s Faith Season by Season (Upper Room Books, 2015)
If you choose to write down a story about feeling God’s presence, who could you share that with today?
Join the conversation.
Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you.
—Jeremiah 30:2 (NRSV)

New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
