Daily Devotions
 

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

During the weeks of Fall, our Daily Devotions are being written by members of Good Shepherd.  Each day one of your brothers or sisters in Christ will be reflecting on faith and life as we all adjust to many changes in our world.  I pray these writings will inspire, comfort and challenge you to grow in faith.  Our dedicated authors have written about their insights, joys and struggles and have been courageous enough to share them with us so that we can also ponder where God is showing up in our own lives. 

As a way to encourage the writers and each other I invite you to share a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page each day.

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 takes us to Huntington Station, NY and a Lutheran church that worked to keep it’s food pantry safe and open during the shut-downs caused by COVID-19.  They learned about love and generosity as strong financial support was given to them for their work in the community and they were able to be even more generous themselves.  They learned what it is to be blessed to be a blessing and that you find life by giving it away.

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

As is true for many food pantries, the pantry in the video double their food distribution in the early days of COVID.  What do you think it would be like to have to get help from a food pantry for the first time?  Would you feel shame?  Fear?  Appreciation?  What would it be like to encounter Christ-like volunteers who offered you kindness and hospitality?

We can be the presence of Christ to our neighbors in need in the midst of these challenging times, contributing to NEEDS is one way to do that.
