SOAP Daily Devotionals
From Pastor Jamie I love the daily rhythm of spending time in God’s Word. Research shows that regularly reading God’s Word is number one on the list of spiritual disciplines that helps lead to our growth in the faith. We are currently working our way through the Old Testament and the Book of Jeremiah. We are invited to read just one chapter of Scripture each day, and then I offer some reflections on what we have read, which is called the “SOAP” (Scripture verses, Observations, Application, and Prayer) daily devotional. As we prepare to enter the new year, this is a great time to get signed up for this to be sent by email to you every day. Subscribe at universitycarillon.net/SOAP.
Merry Christmas, Pastor Jamie.

Christmas Day — Jamie Westlake
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.’
*Hebrews 1:3a *
“ The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command.”
