2001 Daily Devotions

We extend our sincerest appreciation to Professor emeritus Paul Koch (Spokesman Assistant Editor) for the daily devotional readings to be found inserted in booklet form in this issue. Not only did Prof. Koch compile the scripture, theme, and hymn suggestions, but also submitted them to us “camera ready.” Also, in an opening paragraph, he indicates the background and direction of these devotions.

We pray–we know–that our readers will be blessed as they use these devotions faithfully!
