Devotionals are short essays written by GSLC members and staff that explore the ways the Holy Spirit works within our every day lives.  There are several ways we invite you to use these devotionals:

  • Make them a part of a prayer practice - read a devotion and consider the ways that Christ has worked similarly in your life or works in unexpected ways.
  • Make them a part of a journaling practice - read a devotion and journal about what the Holy Spirit is stirring in you as you reflect on the essay.
  • Use them as a reminder that God works in all things, the bad and the good.

With over 400 available devotions, you can use these daily, weekly, or monthly.  It's up to you!  We just hope that by reading these inspiring stories provided by Good Shepherd's flock you are able to better see where Jesus is present in all things!  Thank you to all of our members that have provided devotionals throughout the past couple of years!

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?
