Advent devotions now available online!

God Pause readers will notice a change this year to devotions during the seasons of Advent and Lent. In the past, Luther Seminary produced printed booklets that were mailed to individuals and congregations. This year, in an effort to focus on good stewardship as well as respond to the large number of readers who enjoy these devotions online, we're offering the Advent and Lenten devotionals as collections that may be downloaded.

Devotions during the seasons of Advent and Lent will still have a theme that enhances worship during these important times of the year. The books will be designed so they're easy to print out in any quantity needed for personal and congregational use.

God Pause subscribers will also continue to receive their daily devotions in their email inbox.

We're excited about this Advent's author and his chosen theme. Longtime God Pause writer and Luther Seminary alumnus Hubert Nelson, '62, will center his devotions on the theme, "Waiting with a Sure and Certain Hope."

You can enjoy God Pause and the special Advent and Lenten writings by downloading "Waiting with a Sure and Certain Hope" at www.luthersem.edu/advent. You'll need a free copy of Adobe Reader installed on your computer to read this PDF file. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at semrel@luthersem.edu.
