For the past six years, The Vine has focused on the practice of one specific spiritual discipline per year, using a monthly devotion to help guide you into deeper relationship with God. The Vine is continuing in 2018 through our Sabbath Year program (please see the Sabbath Year page in Soul Care). For 2017, our discipline was silence and solitude following the pattern that Jesus set in Luke 5:16, "But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed." Each month we examined one passage from the gospels with the goal of entering into the passage with God in a time of learning and reflection, along with an opportunity to meditate on the scripture for the month. Links to all the devotions are available for you below. Links to our 2012 - 2016 devotions and emphasis are also available below. If you would like to find out more about The Vine please contact me.
