Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church Member Devotion:


Dear Members and Friends;

As I mentioned in my last devotion, I would be taking a break for a few weeks. During this four- week hiatus, a suggestion was made that perhaps some of our members might be interested in writing a devotion. I reached out to a number of our people, and they answered affirmatively. So, for the next few weeks, you will receive a devotion from a fellow member of our church, who is willing to go public with their faith. It’s pretty exciting.

A year ago, I remember Annette Bowden sharing a devotion, written by her father, years ago, from a booklet that was put together at Our Saviour’s as an Advent Devotional. The year was 1989. As I thumbed through its pages, I recognized many names of people who contributed writings that are still active in our church today. One of those contributors was our beloved, Elsie Pritchard. As we begin these next few weeks  – listen to a reflection from Elsie. While her writing was intended to point us to Christmas, it forever points us to Christ!
Each Tuesday and Thursday, there will be a new devotion that you can access from the link on our home page –

P.S. – Don’t you think it’s time that we put together another OSLC Member Advent Devotional for 2020? Something to think and pray about.

Yours in Christ, Pastor Mark
