As Paul finished his letter to Timothy, he tells him that he needs to be ready and prepared to hold onto the truth of God’s word even as the world around him turns away from God. We are challenged to do the same thing. As the world around us turns farther from God, we are called to continue to speak truth into their lives. It can be hard to be a light in the darkness, to hold onto our Faith and Hope. Even though we know we are called to be disciples for Christ, we too often feel we don’t have the tools we need. This year we want to redefine what it means to be Equipped.
