Living Our Faith
~ from a post on the Lutherans Connect Facebook Page dated January 3, 2019
Many of us would love to spend more time in spiritual practice than we do, but often find it hard to make space for it in the day-to-day challenges of our lives. As the hectic holiday season subsides, a new year can offer us a chance to make changes and deepen our commitment to what matters most.
In the spirit of our seasonal devotional projects, Lutherans Connect invites you to journey with us through January and the first weeks of the season of Epiphany. As always, we will combine scripture with prayer, images, reflection and music.
This Epiphany our theme is Living Our Faith. In collaboration with Bishop Susan Johnson, National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, we will explore ways to renew our spiritual practice while deepening our experience of what it means to be disciples of Jesus.
In our Sunday readings between Epiphany and Lent we hear the stories of the life and ministry of Jesus, the events that flow from his baptism to his transfiguration. How can we be like the first century followers of Jesus responding to these events in our own twenty-first century world? How can the waters of Jesus’ baptism flow through our own lives in building the realm of God?
Working with a single chapter of Scripture over twelve days and accompanied by excerpts from Praying the Catechism by Donald W. Johnson, LC† Living Our Faith will help us find ways to live our faith anew as disciples in a modern world.
Join us every other day from January 6 to January 28 as we Pray, Read, Worship and Love. And may the light of Epiphany guide us in living our faith now and always!
