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 offers information about the broad scope of work required to truly bring sustainable change to people’s lives.  First people need relief from unmet immediate needs such as hunger.  But other help needs to be implemented such as development, education and advocacy for things to really change.  This video will give you much to ponder.  I hope you will consider where God is calling you to put yourself in a position to be transformed.  (Hint, transformation rarely happens as long as we stay in our comfort zone).

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

Did any of the statistics in the video surprise you?

Do you agree with the statement that God has given us an abundant creation, and there is enough for everyone?  If you agree, what factors lead to everyone not having enough?

 

What did you find most hopeful in this video?
