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 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?
