Devotionals
 

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!

Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone.[a] You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem[b] on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

You may be wondering how we are able to continue to form faith in our kids, families and adults when we aren’t able to gather in the building.  Well, in today’s devotion Pastor Alex Hoops and Jen Jarman, Director of Faith Formation, talk about some of the many ways Good Shepherd has connected with children and youth during the pandemic and how we have resourced our families to engage in faith practices at home.  Martin Luther was a strong advocate that parents are the main faith teachers for children (that’s why he wrote the small catechism, as a tool for parents).  During the pandemic we have focused on helping families learn to grow in faith together by sharing resources and supporting parents in these challenging days.

In this video you can learn more specifically about what we have been up to!  Family Ministry Video
