The Vineyard Book of Devotions: A Daily Devotional (Paperback)
For over forty years Dean Barley has directed The Vineyard Camp and Retreat Center, an international sports camp for children. This book offers a sampling of the evening vesper messages, morning watch devotions and blogs Dean has prepared over the past few years. Although he wears many hats as the Executive Director, his passion has always been to challenge young adults and youth to experience the unfathomable love of God and Christ's call to discipleship. Over 25,000 youth from 40 countries have visited the camp. The campers are boys and girls, affluent or in need of financial assistance, Protestant and Catholic, and from all cultures. It's truly a microcosm of the true Kingdom of God. And yet they all come to this holy haven to experience something very special and unique each summer. This daily devotional offers some insight into what running a camp and raising four young men is all about, but Dean also has been able to open his heart to what he's come to understand as a disciple of Jesus Christ through the trials, challenges and heartaches he's experienced.
