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 introduces us to Senior Citizen Jim Freeman of Spartanburg, S.C.  When we think of hunger we may not think about elderly people at first.  Hearing Jim’s story will reveal that many seniors need not only help with meals, but also relief from a deep sense of loneliness.  The NEEDS food pantry in Kenwood offers help to people of all ages, including the elderly.  

Watch the video and reflect on the questions below: Video Link

Have you ever considered how your presence in a person’s life might help relieve them of the crushing loneliness they face every day?  Who in your life might benefit from your friendship and kindness the way Jim’s life is affected by the volunteers from the mobile meal program? 

Who might you pray with today?
