Short, accessible meditations and photography to guide you through the season
Author and pastor Russ Levenson invites readers to “find shelter” in time each day with Jesus.
Forty meditations, scripture passages, reflections for contemplation, and prayers fill this volume designed to accompany and encourage readers throughout autumn. Each daily devotional entry includes a concluding thought and closing prayer. Every meditation includes photographs taken by the author. This thoughtful volume is part of a series.
