In the spring of 2022, the Mpuguso Committee asked members of St. Paul’s to participate in a new endeavor. They asked members to contribute to a devotional booklet that would contain short devotions composed by and shared among the members of St. Paul’s congregation and the Mpuguso congregation. What they asked us to do is to think about our favorite Scripture verse or story. If we couldn’t pick a favorite, asked us to pick a Scripture verse or story that has been important to us. Then we were asked to quote that verse or identify that story and, in one-page or less, tell why this verse has been meaningful to us. What we would like to share with others about this verse and what it has meant to us? Our brother Elisha at Mpuguso is collecting devotional stories too and will be translating the devotions from members of Mpuguso Lutheran Church into English as well as St. Paul’s devotions into Swahili. Our hope was to merge St. Paul’s devotions and Mpuguso devotions into one devotional booklet for all to use during the Pentecost season. The booklet did not happen but during Pentecost a Konde Devotion has been posted each Sunday with the bulletin on the webpage and in an email to our members to read. To make it easier, all of the Devotions are now posted below and will be added for each Sunday in Pentecost. Thanks to all who joyfully shared in faith with our sisters and brothers here in York and in our sister congregation in Tanzania.
