We have the new September-November edition of the Our Daily Bread Devotional. Drop by the church office to pick up your issue today! Copies are available in the literature racks by any church entrance.
One of the most important spiritual disciplines for growing in your faith is a daily time of prayer and reflection on God's word. Jesus modeled this for us in his regular practice of rising early, going to be by himself, and praying (Mark 1:35). Jesus tells his disciples to "abide in me;" The best way we can do this is by committing to the practice of daily time with God.
Madeira-Silverwood offers both Our Daily Bread and The Upper Room. Both of these are simple magazine style devotionals. Each day, they provide a scripture reading, a thoughtful one page meditation, and a few questions for deeper reflection.
For those interested in going deeper, Our Daily Bread also provides web addresses for further study and suggested readings for working through the Bible in a year.
We keep print copies of both Our Daily Bread and The Upper Room in the literature racks by all the church entries. Pick up the latest issue when you come to church on Sunday. Alternatively, visit the Our Daily Bread website at www.odb.org and The Upper Room website at www.upperroom.org.
