In our world today Christians face opposition. There is push back to expressions of faith in public life. It can be discouraging, but overcoming it can also be rewarding. This devotional story looks at Germany at the time of Hitler. He oppressed not only people of other faiths but also the Christian faith.

Purpose of this Devotional Website
We live in a complicated world. The life that God wants us to live is far different than what the world accepts as appropriate behavior. The world is much different today than when Jesus walked the earth. Yet, God's Word never changes.
As my own personal ministry I write devotional stories for use in today's contemporary times. They use settings and examples that are in the news and our world today. It is my goal to apply God's timeless teachings and commandments to show how they apply to us today. I try to present the faith lessons in a non-threatening way but with a clear biblical basis.
Each week I add a new story to the library of devotional stories. I hope you can utilize them as a personal devotion or in a group setting.
If you would like to receive the most recent stories as they are written there is a section on the home page for you to provide your email address. I generally email them each weekend.
The stories on this website are not copyrighted. Feel free to share them with others. The goal is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with as many people as we can. Join me in this ministry.

Holy Moment Series
According to the book The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity, a Holy Moment is "when you are being the person God created you to be, and you are doing what you believe God is calling you to do in that moment." The Matthew Kelly book encourages people of faith to differentiate themselves by living their faith by acts of service to help others, especially those who could not possibly return the favor. I encourage you to read the book for a greater understanding of this important topic. The book is copyrighted (Copyright@2018Kakadu, LLC). My own devotional stories and Sunday School lesson use quotes from the book and is not copyrighted.
Four Part Devotional Series: After reading this inspirational book I have developed a series of four devotions and a Sunday School lesson about the Holy Moment concept. I will publish on this website one devotional story each of the next four weeks.
Sunday School Lesson: I will also post a suggested Sunday School lesson with a teacher and participant guide. My hope is that many churches would encourage their members to do Holy Moments in their community. Together we can show our faith through our daily life. Sunday School Lesson
