Guarding and proclaiming the unchanging truth in a changing world


Dear Subscriber,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to continue the weekday Lift Up Your Heart devotionals.

It is our hope that in the future we may be able to resume providing the devotional, or at least, have a series at particular points in the Anglican Liturgical Calendar.

As you will appreciate there has been considerable time and effort involved in producing the devotionals thus far.

Much of that work has been done voluntarily and we want to thank our writers, recorders and translators for providing such a wonderful service over the course of these past months.

We continue to pray that the devotions will have caused you to regularly turn to the Scriptures and seek the counsel of our great God for your daily life.

The Lord be with you.

When we battle with the same trials and troubles, it’s tempting to seek a fresh word from the Lord. We can wrongly think that the old, old story of the Bible is outdated and lacking relevance.
