Gaining Altitude — Growth Opportunities for the Week

Chaplain (Maj.) John M. Von Almen
412th TW chaplain

“To everything there is a season …” Many of us are overjoyed that spring is here. The flowers are blooming and the cold of winter has passed. Spring, as a season, often provides the human spirit with feelings of hope, reminding us of the power of life. Even in the midst of the desert, we see the signs of spring, but we also know that summer is on its way, too! Our challenge is to carry the hope of spring through the heat of summer and the chill of winter, and be a source of hope for others we encounter.

Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
Creator of life, encourage us with hope during the days of spring, that we may encourage one another in all seasons of life. Amen.
