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.  Today’s video is from our own state of Ohio and the little town of Junction City.  Some in the community suffer from chronic poverty, made only worse by COVID-19.  This Lutheran Church partners with other churches in town, so that every week a community meal is offered.  Before COVID they served about 60 meals each week.  Now it is between 100-150.  They understand this struggle will be around awhile, and they are committed to be in it for the long haul.  It is hard to see your neighbors facing such challenges, but also meaningful to be able to help.

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

What reaction do you have to the Pastor offering to pray with those coming to receive the meals?  Have you ever offered to pray with someone who is suffering in some way?  What was that like?  Is there someone you might offer to pray with today?  In these days of COVID,  even prayers over the phone are appreciated.
