Online Devotions Our Leaders Are Following (Learning from the Lab)

Tend to your own spirituality as a church leader
by Lee Ann Pomrenke | February 19, 2021

Church leaders have produced or recommended all kinds of devotional resources to our congregations for the introspective season of Lent. We asked participants in the Learning Lab, what they are following to tend to their own spirituality (which may be different than what they produced for their congregations). Here is a summary of some of the resources they named:

Devotions via e-mail from colleges/universities or seminaries such as these:

Churchwide denominations’ devotions such as this one from the United Church of Christ. Often these are not just for one church season but year-round.

An “online retreat” produced in Scotland by the Society of Jesus, Jesuits, a Catholic religious order, is open to all throughout the world.

Digging into the whole Bible in new ways:

Reading the lectionary with plans such as this one from N.T. Wright and the Church of England

Bi-lingual English/Spanish devotions such as this one from Living Compass

Reflecting through others’ stories such as in this resource from Lutherans Connect in Canada

What online devotions are sustaining you in this season? Share ideas and recommendations with other leaders in the Learning Lab!
