The Hebrew words for “blessing” (barak) and for “lightning” (barach) are strikingly similar. How fitting that a bolt of lightning from the sky similarly suggests a clear and present (and surprising) blessing, one that comes as a flash ignited by the Word of God.  These daily meditations are shaped to afford wise guidance for the Christian life in a world of lightning strikes both good and bad. Based in the Scriptures and circling the liturgical church year, these candid readings provide unique and faithful insight for navigating the day-to-day life.

Pastor, Professor, and Author David M. Albertin provides a thematicaly organized collection of 100 Scriptural-based devotions. Short and winsome, they are ideal for a brief mid-day personal devotions or for use by pastors looking for resources for devotions to open their myriad church meetings. 

Born to become the second of eight boys, David Michael Albertin is a graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary, St. Louis. Ordained in 1965, he has since served as pastor of LC–MS congregations in Ohio, New York, Illinois, and Indiana. He holds the PhD in Communications from the State University of New York in Buffalo and has taught as an adjunct professor in Communications at McKendree University, Valparaiso University and Purdue North Central University for 35 years.
