Theme Devotions 2017-18
This year’s prayer booklet contains a dozen student-written devotions on the 2017-18 Campus Ministries theme, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.” We live in a tumultuous world where peace often seems out of reach. People and nations bicker, fight, and refuse to listen to one another. Many of us suffer internally from worries, doubts, anxieties, and other real-life struggles. Is there no relief? Where is that light at the end of the tunnel? This is where you come in. Are you willing to offer relief to your peers at Goshen College? If so, become a peacemaker. Be a supportive, listening presence for those gripped with anxiety and depression. May these devotionals nourish your soul and spur on your creative imagination for practical, relevant and timely peacemaking initiatives on our campus and community that will enable people to experience a taste of the shalom that Jesus talked about.
The Campus Ministries Devotions Book includes devotions from 2007-2016 based on the annual Campus Ministries themes connected to the college’s five core values.
