Daily Devotional

Daily Devotional

The Holston Daily Devotional is a collaborative writing effort by Holston Clergy and Laity alike. Following the Revised Common Lectionary, our devotional authors spend time reading the scripture and writing in a way to help each of us grow closer to God. Beginning during Lent 2019, the Holston Daily Devotional has rarely missed a day. 

Our goal is to help people grow deeper in love with God and neighbor through the reading and writing of shared experiences of our Holston community. If you are interested in writing a devotional, please contact Madasun Loy, and she will explain our submission process. Guidelines for our daily devotion can be found here.

If you are new to the devotional, please subscribe below. You can also read our previous devotionals by clicking on the archive section in the blue navigation menu on your left.
