|Weekly devotions focus on wellness|
| As part of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s focus on church worker wellness, a new series of weekly devotions and prayers will be rolling out over the next year. |
The devotions are written by church workers for church workers. Each devotion focuses on an aspect of wellness, such as vocational, relational, financial or emotional.
Read the first devotion, and watch the Synod’s Facebook page or Twitter channel for a new devotion every Monday morning. Beginning in late April, a prayer for church workers will also be posted to social media every Thursday morning.
“Next to strong, Gospel-soaked, biblical teaching and practice, there is nothing so critical to the church’s life as the well-being of our pastors and church workers,” said LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, concerning the importance of supporting the servants of the church. Please check out these weekly resources and share them with the church workers in your life.
