Daily Devotions
 

We are thrilled to once again be sharing a daily devotion with you for the season of Advent. These inspiring devotions have been written by YOU the members of Good Shepherd.  A sincere “thank you” to everyone who opened their hearts to share a small piece of their faith journey with us.   As we journey toward Bethlehem in this season, take time each day to walk with God and experience the stirrings of the deep love that took on flesh to walk with us.  

During the four week Advent season, each Wednesday our devotion will be a video reflection by Dr. Kevin Seal, Director of Worship and Music at Good Shepherd, as he shares a teaching about the Words and Music of Advent.

Each new day’s devotion will go live directly on our webpage, goodshepherd.com at 6am, (look under the worship tab at the top right of the front page) or you can follow the link that will be sent out later each morning in an email from Good Shepherd.  


Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

Daily Devotion

Our devotions written by Good Shepherd members will resume next week, but this week our daily devotions will take a different approach as we focus on Hunger in conjunction with our NEEDS food drive.  Each day we will watch a short video from ELCA World Hunger that will help us gain a better understanding of the extend of poverty in our world, and ways that the ELCA is trying to improve the lives of those trapped in poverty.  

Today’s video takes us to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Reformation Lutheran Church.  Reformation was 112 years old when they sold their church building so they could relocate in a neighborhood with families they could directly serve.  In this video you will learn about the ministry they are doing with young parents.  Watch the video here and then reflect on the questions below:  Video Link

One of the leaders in the video pointed out that to be a church or have a ministry doesn’t require “a steeple”.  How have you observed Good Shepherd’s ministry continue even when we can’t access our building.   

If Good Shepherd sold our building and moved closer to the people we wanted to serve, where do you think we should move?

Do you think it is easier to share the Gospel if  at the same time you are also helping to meet someone’s needs?
