Bless This Journey

by Beth A Richardson on May 2, 2017

Thank you, Alive Now friends, for being companions with us through the years. It’s been such an honor to travel on this journey with you.

I am beginning a new job this month as the Director of Prayer and Upper Room Worship Life. Thank you for your prayers for me and for The Upper Room as we discern how we can be of service to the world.

Several notes for you:

  1. Audio Lectio is still located here on our website. Join us each week and pray the gospel reading. Listen and pray.
  2. We recommend Sight Psalms and/or Daily Reflections from Upper Room Books for your daily inspirational email.
  3. Please be sure to sign up for a monthly email from Alive Now and Weavings. We’ll share any publishing developments that might interest you.

Thank you, dear friends, and God’s richest blessings for you!

Beth A. Richardson
