On September 7th, Blue Ridge Presbyterian will embark on Crown_Logo_Horizontala 31-week journey of transformation with “The Story.”   Beginning that Sunday, all of our Sunday School classes (9:30 a.m.) and our worship service (10:45 a.m.) will be anchored around God’s story as told across 31 chronological chapters.   As we prepare for this faith experience, I invite you to join me in a 40-day period of prayer.   So gather with me here each day to share a brief prayer and scripture verse as we anticipate this time together.   As always, I’ll welcome your thoughts and comments in the space below!



Dear God, Please prepare our hearts and minds to receive the beauty, the majesty, the challenge and the hope of your story.  Amen.



Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope.  This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.”   – Psalm 119:49-50
