Starting With Scripture: CALL FOR AUTHORS


Calling all Writers


We are looking to schedule the authors for the 2023 Starting With Scripture devotional.

If you are a previous author and want to continue writing or if you would like to participate for the first time, please email me at for access to the schedule and available dates. 

Starting with Scripture details:

  • The Starting With Scripture Devotional is a 500-700 word reflection on the published common lectionary text or another topic of the author's choice.
  • In addition, the author is asked to include a prayer, a 1-line bio, and a photo.
  • The piece is published weekly on Mondays prior to the scheduled lectionary text and includes other prayers requested by our readers and staff for churches to share. 
  • This devotional is currently published through an email subscriber list and posted to the SNE Conference website. 
  • Devotions are due 4 weeks before the publication date. Authors will receive reminders if due date is missed.

Please let me know if you wish to participate as a devotional author.
