The Upper Room have an excellent website for Devo’Zine, their devotional magazine for young people. The magazine itself is a bimonthly, full colour booklet with a theme for each week and daily meditations which feature stories, reflections, poems and prayers, and scripture references. It’s not a Bible commentary but rather a prompt for reflection, prayer and the development of spiritual practices. In Australia, the resource is available from MediaCom.
The website is both an extension of the resource and a site with a life of its own. On it you can explore current themes from Devo’Zine, access free leaders’ guides for group sessions based on the weekly themes, learn abolut spiritual practices, sbare prayers/poems/photos, read articles, and even post prayer requests. It also links with Facebook and Twitter.
The Upper Room is the US United Methodist Church’s publishing and resource centre for spiritual development. I’ve been writing for them for over a decade now.
So check it out and tell your youth leaders and young people about it.
