Today in the PC-USA Mission Yearbook

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.

MINUTE FOR MISSION: COLUMBIA THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY - I  wonder if the wise men got hungry as they journeyed home along another road, bypassing Herod and his henchmen. Perhaps Mary and Joseph experienced hunger as they fled Bethlehem for Egypt and later traveled into Galilee. Imagine what it was like for them, protecting their infant son as they sought shelter and safety. The risks they took fulfilled the promises of Scripture. What an amazing story!

In these days of holiday excess and indulgence, it may be hard for us to imagine hunger. But as Jesus-followers, we are encouraged to care for the sick and feed the hungry.
