We post a Forward Day by Day Meditation for every day of the year - and we invite you to consider them and talk about them here. If you'd like to comment, please register for an account at Facebook.

You can also find the past week's Meditations in the box at right (or below, for mobile users), or search for previous entries on the Archives page.
Luke 1:66 All who heard them pondered them and said, “What then will this child become?” For, indeed, the hand of the Lord was with him.
Following Jesus means patterning our lives in such a way that everything we do points toward him. In the Episcopal tradition, candidates for baptism promise to seek and serve Christ in all people, to love their neighbors as themselves, and to respect the dignity of every human being. With Blessed John as our forerunner, may we too so pattern our lives that they would point others to Jesus.
MOVING FORWARD: Who pointed you toward Jesus with their actions and words? Thank that person today! Share your story of coming to faith by using #ForwardDayByDay.
