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.

Pastor Heidi Johns

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

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 is from our own state of Ohio and the little town of Junction City.  Some in the community suffer from chronic poverty, made only worse by COVID-19.  This Lutheran Church partners with other churches in town, so that every week a community meal is offered.  Before COVID they served about 60 meals each week.  Now it is between 100-150.  They understand this struggle will be around awhile, and they are committed to be in it for the long haul.  It is hard to see your neighbors facing such challenges, but also meaningful to be able to help.

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

What reaction do you have to the Pastor offering to pray with those coming to receive the meals?  Have you ever offered to pray with someone who is suffering in some way?  What was that like?  Is there someone you might offer to pray with today?  In these days of COVID,  even prayers over the phone are appreciated.
