The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. The stories in the 2013 Mission Yearbook were gathered around the question of Jesus to his disciples, “How many loaves have you?” from Mark 6:38. The book is filled with stories of God’s abundance in the face of overwhelming needs and a scarcity of resources.
Today in the Mission Yearbook: August 25, 2013
MINUTE FOR MISSION: PUBLIC EDUCATION - “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. . . . And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt. 22:37–38)
Although the autumnal equinox is still a month away, the end of August always feels like the end of summer. And for the majority of the 50 million or so school-age children, the end of summer marks the beginning of school. Ninety percent of those children attend public schools. On this Public Education Sunday, Presbyterians around the nation are invited to remember these children and the teachers and staff who work with them.
