Occasionally, we will reprint prior devotions that now reflect on the coming lectionary texts. This is a reprint from a devotion originally published on June 8, 2013.
Reading: Psalm 23
If you ever get the chance, go lay in the grass on a starry night and stare into the sky. Think of the words of this psalm and imagine the good shepherd watching over you. You may even want to listen to some soft piano music as you meditate or pray. It can be a very moving experience. You will undoubtedly feel God's presence in His creation. You will probably feel humbled as you look at the stars and think about your place in the universe. The awesomeness and majesty of our Lord will be apparent as you lie down in green pastures. He is the Good Shepherd. Alleluia! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Re-read and meditate on the psalm.
