For several months we have been sharing Pass This On messages with our CID churches as a way to reach the unchurched in our communities. We have continued these messages into the new year and are providing them to you to help prepare for services on the upcoming Sunday. Come back each week for the next devotional to be posted! Please feel free to print and share these devotionals also!
Pastor Harter was asked about prayer. He created this way to work through having "Having a Good Prayer" for someone that may be unfamiliar with praying alone. If you would like a copy of the PDF to print for yourself or share, please click here to download.
These short devotions were written by Rev. Jeff Harter as a series aired on Facebook during the 2020 Covid-19 crisis. May you find in them peace, strength, meaning, confidence, and hope from our ever-present almighty and all-loving God. To God be the glory!
Our main goal in using social media is to inform our audiences and engage broader advocacy and support for District activities. Another goal is to publicize various events in which District congregations, schools, and rostered churchworkers are involved.
Our Lord said, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12). Requesting that our social media followers, friends, and supporters hold themselves to this standard, we encourage respectful postings. We do not edit the posts of others, but the LCMS Central Illinois District reserves the right to refrain from including in its social media duplicate, irrelevant, inappropriate, or offensive content, or content that is otherwise inconsistent with CID’s goals for social media usage. Political statements and/or endorsements are not allowed.
