In 1990, a delightful saint of the Lord, Mrs. Renee Hasskamp of Crosby, Minnesota, gave her pastor an old devotion book which she had cherished for decades. It proved to be a singular text of remarkable clarity and power and comfort in my daily devotions. Modern devotions tend to be antiseptic or weakly emotional, but the rugged words of Luther in this text were a daily surprise and treat. They applied so well to my life that I shared my enthusiasm for the book with many people. It was originally published in 1926, and the title was “Five Minutes Daily with Luther: Daily Lessons from the Writings of Martin Luther.” - Robin Fish

Crossing the Knowledge Threshold: God Connects
Created as a user-friendly series on the Christian faith,GodConnects delivers a dozen brief (eight- to ten-minutes long) videos, which are hosted by Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker for The Lutheran Hour. In these brief videos, Seltz looks at topics like God’s nature, Communion, the end of time, prayer, the Ten Commandments, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, among others.
Each session is supported by an extensive discussion guide, which can be downloaded as a PDF and printed (making it ready for your personal notes), or it can be read online. “Things to think about” and “Digging Deeper” links expand the subject matter in profitable ways, while relevant Bible passages beef up the content and add depth to the topic under consideration.
