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

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 offers information about the broad scope of work required to truly bring sustainable change to people’s lives.  First people need relief from unmet immediate needs such as hunger.  But other help needs to be implemented such as development, education and advocacy for things to really change.  This video will give you much to ponder.  I hope you will consider where God is calling you to put yourself in a position to be transformed.  (Hint, transformation rarely happens as long as we stay in our comfort zone).

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

Did any of the statistics in the video surprise you?

Do you agree with the statement that God has given us an abundant creation, and there is enough for everyone?  If you agree, what factors lead to everyone not having enough?


What did you find most hopeful in this video?
