Everyday Skeptics: Devotions for Spiritual Growth
Being skeptical is not about being unfaithful. It is about being a good student who wants the stories of our faith to stick.
This Lenten devotional and study focuses on the words of the prophets, who often faced a skeptical reception. How do the words of past prophets continue to live today? How do they inform our faith formation and our actions as a church?
The 47 daily devotions have been written by a wide variety of contributors who do local and global ministry with The United Church of Canada.
Full group study guide included, with one session per week of Lent.
"Everyday Skeptics makes for a great Lenten guidebook, with diverse voices wrestling with the “So what?!” question, cracking open faith stories, ancient and modern, prophetic and personal. These guides know this journey is important—and their excitement is catching." —Very Rev. Gary Paterson, former Moderator, The United Church of Canada
"Everyday Skeptics takes seriously the way many of us wrestle with the hard questions. It provides pathways of thinking that are not denials of what we see and feel. I appreciate the diversity of thinkers and thought that went into this, and the permission to continue a faith that won’t discount doubt." —Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ
"We must allow for reflection that honours our deepest fears, and yes, even skepticism, as we make our way on our own Christian journeys. I believe that God can handle our inquiry, our fear, our skepticism, and that we will emerge stronger for having raised questions, for allowing the light of scripture to illuminate our path, and for allowing ourselves communion with the spirit of God." —Rev. Teresa “Terri” Hord Owens, General Minister and President, The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the US and Canada
