Looking for spiritual refreshment? God Pause email devotions are short, meaningful reflections on the following Sunday's lessons and gospel delivered directly to your e-mail box. By Sunday, you'll be ready for an extra meaningful worship experience. The devotion writers are Luther Seminary alumni. Their reflections are a gift to you and to the church.
