Devotionals

Your ability to put your faith into action grows when you take action to grow your faith. Reading and reflecting on scripture can open new insight into today’s world. Themes of compassion for the hungry, justice for the oppressed, standing against evil, and so on are perennial – in antiquity when scripture was written, in this world today, and the world tomorrow. 

Please explore the recommended opportunities to dive deeper into scripture to find the right fit for you. Blessings on your journey!
