Happy New Year! If you are looking for a devotional to start off the new year, look no further! This is the perfect opportunity to check out our Synod Devotional that was made possible by your Pastors, Conference Deans, and Assistants to the Bishop for the year 2023. It is a month-by-month devotional designed for your congregation, church leaders, council meetings, or wherever you are moved to use it.
You will notice that it is split in half by two themes: Centered on Christ and Empowered by the Spirit. The first six months/devotions follow the theme Centered on Christ to reflect our most recent Synod Assembly theme. The other six follow the theme Empowered by the Spirit to reflect this year’s upcoming Synod Assembly theme.
I hope you all enjoy this wonderful resource we put together for you. And I would like to take the time to say a big thank you to those who helped create it:
Pastor Scott Bacon Pastor Larry Klinker
Pastor Lisa Arledge Pastor Jean Hansen
Pastor William Weidenbach Jr. Pastor Angela Freeman-Riley
Pastor Doug Fidler Pastor Mitch Phillips
Pastor Eric Edwards Pastor Robert Eller
Pastor Julianne Smith Pastor Don King
