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!

Happy Thanksgiving!!  We invite you to watch our Thanksgiving worship service today under the worship resources tab on our webpage.

Here is a prayer to share at your Thanksgiving Table:

Gracious and loving God, we give you thanks for your presence with us which makes this meal and this gathering a holy place and time.  We lift our thanks to you now—

For people who have offered us grace, forgiveness and kindness, including…..(individuals are invited to name or silently remember people)

For those things that bless our daily lives including our home, work, school, special experiences….(individuals are invited to name or silently remember  things dear to them)

For those things that help build up our faith including our church and spiritual mentors…(individuals are invited to nameor remember silently something that has impacted their faith)

God we also remember those for whom this day is a struggle, those who are ill or isolated and alone, those for whom poverty is a constant obstacle, those who have no one to care for them.  Use us to ease the burdens they carry and inspire us to share your love widely in our world. Amen.
