Devotionals are short essays written by GSLC members and staff that explore the ways the Holy Spirit works within our every day lives.  There are several ways we invite you to use these devotionals:

  • Make them a part of a prayer practice - read a devotion and consider the ways that Christ has worked similarly in your life or works in unexpected ways.
  • Make them a part of a journaling practice - read a devotion and journal about what the Holy Spirit is stirring in you as you reflect on the essay.
  • Use them as a reminder that God works in all things, the bad and the good.

With over 400 available devotions, you can use these daily, weekly, or monthly.  It's up to you!  We just hope that by reading these inspiring stories provided by Good Shepherd's flock you are able to better see where Jesus is present in all things!  Thank you to all of our members that have provided devotionals throughout the past couple of years!

Daily Devotion by Pr. Heidi Johns

Romans 12:5

so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

We are not meant to do our life of faith alone.  Jesus gave us the gift of each other and he has promised to be among us when we gather.  We are all members of the same body, when one rejoices we all rejoice with them, when one suffers sorrow we cry together, when one faces tragedy we hold them up, when one is discouraged in faith we pray for them in hope.

How has being a part of the Good Shepherd community been a blessing to you?  In today’s video you will hear two stories from members of Good Shepherd about the blessing of community.

As we join our lives together as disciples of Jesus, we also share our resources because together we can do more than any of us could do alone.  As the end of the fiscal year approaches, your financial gifts help to strengthen our community.
