Daily Devotions

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

In the church year the season of Epiphany falls between the seasons of Christmas and Lent.  It is a time when we focus on how God’s hope is revealed in Jesus.  In this season we read the stories of the Baptism and Transfiguration of Jesus and the calling of the Disciples.  Each story reveals a bit about who Jesus is, and what his life means for us and our call to be disciples.

Our Devotions for the season of Epiphany have been written by members of the Good Shepherd staff.  May they enlighten and inspire you and light your path to a deeper walk with God.

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.
