This summer, Lakeside Chautauqua is introducing a collection of devotionals, titled By the Water’s Edge.

The booklet, compiled by the Advancement & Communications Department, includes 30 devotionals written by preachers, community members and staff. Each author was invited to write a devotional based on a scripture of their choice.

The Rev. Bob Machovec, former chair of the Religious Life Advisory Team, coordinated the development of the devotional booklet this winter.

By the Water’s Edge is available for purchase at Artists-N-Cahoots for $10. All proceeds support the Religious Life Department.
