Over the last week we’ve had around 1,000 people sign up to the Daily Devotions so I thought it would be helpful to cover a few housekeeping things.
Firstly, welcome to our new subscribers. I hope you find the daily reflections and Sunday service a useful resource in trying times.
From time to time the various email providers get more embracing in their spam filters. You should add this email address to your contacts as that will help. If your provider has a Safe Senders’ List add this address to that too. If you don’t get a Devotion one morning do check your Spam folder before emailing me to ask about it.
If you change your email address you can do that by pressing the “update my preferences link” at the bottom of each email.
Some of you have asked if it’s ok to print off the Devotions to give to people who aren’t on email – yes of course but you may prefer to print booklets which we prepare for just this purpose. If you’d like this please sign up to the booklet list here and drop me a note to say you’ve done it if you wish the next few booklets which have already been sent out.
I’m often asked if Devotions can be put in church newsletters – yes of course but please credit the writer and Daily Devotions from the URC.
Finally, some of you have asked if you can have the Sunday worship material ahead of time to distribute orders of service and the recording either on CD or memory sticks to those who don’t have email. I will be sending out, on Tuesday, material for 29th March, Palm Sunday and Good Friday and, thereafter, I hope to send just one email a month with the following month’s material on. This will create less work for local church contacts. If you’d like to have that material you can sign up to the early bird list here.
with every good wish
Andy Braunston Coordinator, Daily Devotions from the URC
If today’s Daily Devotion is not showing on your church’s website, this will have affected all church websites using this feed in the same way. Our volunteer technical team are probably aware of the issue and will be working to fix it as soon as they are able. Thank you.
