New Every Morning
daily reflections from Upper Room Books
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.

Gerrit Scott Dawson has been the minister of the First Presbyterian Church of Lenoir, North Carolina for thirteen years, learning the joy of the "extraordinary ordinariness" in the long-term pastorate. He is married and the father of four children. Thankful that each year’s rhythm includes a contribution to Weavings, his most recent book is the forthcoming Jesus Ascended: The Meaning of Christ’s Continuing Incarnation.
