Daily Devotions

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

In the church year the season of Epiphany falls between the seasons of Christmas and Lent.  It is a time when we focus on how God’s hope is revealed in Jesus.  In this season we read the stories of the Baptism and Transfiguration of Jesus and the calling of the Disciples.  Each story reveals a bit about who Jesus is, and what his life means for us and our call to be disciples.

Our Devotions for the season of Epiphany have been written by members of the Good Shepherd staff.  May they enlighten and inspire you and light your path to a deeper walk with God.

Daily Devotion

Our daily devotions will take a different approach from October 19-30 as we focus on Hunger in conjunction with our NEEDS food drive.  Each day we will watch a short video from ELCA World Hunger.  Our video today takes us to a Lutheran Church sponsored community garden in Alaska that yields 2700 pounds of food for the community and a food program in North East Philadelphia that is supported by 325 volunteer hours each week.  These are great ministries that our Outreach gifts help to support through the ELCA. 

Please watch today’s video and reflect on the questions below:  Video Link

What memories do you have of “Lutheran Pot Lucks?”  

In the video the man from Alaska said God invited him to start a community garden.  What has or is God inviting you to do to make a positive impact for a “just world until all are fed?”

What role do Christians have in advocating for the poor with our elected officials?
