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 introduces us to Senior Citizen Jim Freeman of Spartanburg, S.C.  When we think of hunger we may not think about elderly people at first.  Hearing Jim’s story will reveal that many seniors need not only help with meals, but also relief from a deep sense of loneliness.  The NEEDS food pantry in Kenwood offers help to people of all ages, including the elderly.  

Watch the video and reflect on the questions below: Video Link

Have you ever considered how your presence in a person’s life might help relieve them of the crushing loneliness they face every day?  Who in your life might benefit from your friendship and kindness the way Jim’s life is affected by the volunteers from the mobile meal program? 

Who might you pray with today?
