I hope you have found the devotions over the last two weeks looking at themes arising from Empire useful and stimulating. We now move on to four weeks’ worth of Devotions from the Rev’d Dr Janet Tollington. Janet is now a retired minister worshipping in Downing Place URC in Cambridge but was, for many years, Old Testament Tutor at our Westminster College. She has crafted 24 devotions looking at the Elijah and Elisha cycle of stories and we hope they stimulate your interest and discipleship – especially as some aspects of the stories are rather unsavoury. Whenever we look at narratives the readings are rather longer than they would be than for an Epistle or other teaching material. Don’t let that put you off.
As ever, each morning you can read the Devotion via email or listen to it via a podcast – just follow the link above. If you need to change your email address please use the link, below, “update my mailing preferences”
Finally, we’ve designed a new poster to advertise the devotions. It’s a PDF file which could be printed out for church noticeboards or put into a church newsletter. As people think about New Year’s resolutions encouraging them to take up the Devotions might be a nice idea! You can download it here. I’ve reproduced it below so you can see what it looks like.
