In 2021, when Bishop Rod visited a parish, he often took along the devotional book “90 Days in Genesis, Exodus, Psalms and Galatians” by Lee Gatiss to share. This devotional takes a bible passage, a short excerpt from one of four reformers (Calvin, Luther, Bullinger and Cranmer), and asks some thought-provoking questions. Each devotion takes around 20min and encourages you to really think through the passage and how it applies to your life. If you are looking for a quality devotional, this is a great option.
