Forward Today: Staying on the path

Dear friends in Christ,

Following Jesus is a daily adventure. We need to stay on track, and that takes more than an hour-long check-in on Sunday morning. Daily devotions can really help us focus on what’s important.

Since 1935, Forward Movement has helped disciples grow each and every day. Over the years we’ve created devotionals of all kinds—from books and pamphlets, to smartphone apps and podcasts that support your spiritual journey on the go.

We know what works for one person’s spiritual life may not be right for someone else. God has made us all in great variety. On that note, if you are looking for a fresh take on devotions, check out Tim Schenck’s new book, Devotions for People Who Don’t Do Devotions, just published by Forward Movement. He might be able to help you get started.

This Forward Today weekly email isn’t meant to be a mere infomercial for Forward Movement. So, to that end, I want to recommend a powerful devotion from outside the Episcopal/Anglican world that has also served generation after generation. I personally love the classic, My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. You can buy a book or read it online for free. It’s a vigorous and challenging take on this Christian life.

If these don’t work for you, keep looking. It’s important that we who follow Jesus find a way to stay on the path as life sends us on twists and turns.

Yours faithfully,
