My name is Timothy Utton and and this website is my way of encouraging people in their faith by sharing some things that I love. I really had it upon my heart to reach out to the internet community and share some devotions. But I wanted them to be unique and hopefully beneficial to the spirit of others. So I will be hosting 2 new podcasts, plus I will be posting my Sunday sermons that I am currently sharing at Apostles Lutheran Church in Chesapeake,VA:
1. Weekday Boost
This first podcast created to be a shot in the arm of encouragement throughout the work week. I will be using a mix of devotional and inspirational materials through new testament readings, spoken hymns, encouraging stories and prayer in under 15 minutes! In 1st Thessalonians 3:6, the heading is Timothy’s Encouraging Report and talks about how Timothy “has brought us the good news of your faith and love….” and also in chapter 5:11 Paul tells us to “encourage one another and build one another up.” So in this podcast, I hope to echo the same spirit of encouragement for the listeners.
For those that desire just to be fueled up by God’s word alone throughout the week, I will also be doing a weekday reading of the New Testament and Psalms. I found out that most years have close to 260 week days and there are exactly 260 chapters in the New Testament, so I will be reading one chapter a day. But what will make this a little unique is that I am not going to read straight through – I have created a schedule of readings that loosely align with the church year. For instance, at Pentecost the schedule has the reading of the book of Acts; we will have Christmas readings around Christmas and during Epiphany we will be reading from the Gospel of John. If you would like to download a schedule, you can download it here. 2015 Weekday Readings. We will also be read through the Psalms twice throughout the year.
