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
commitments 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 the baptism
of Jesus 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 for twelve days as we Pray, Read, Worship and Love.
And may the light of Epiphany guide us in living our faith
now and always.

The LC† Living our Faith is a collaborative project of Lutherans Connect and
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada National Office.
