Have a Minute? – by Doug Dortch
Time is a form of currency that each of us is afforded a set amount. No one has any more or any less time. Everyone is granted the same 1,440 minutes in a day. How we use them, however, is our decision. This book of devotions recognizes that reality and offers a resource to make those moments we carve out of our busy schedules the most meaningful. Based on the Christian year, these brief reflections invite readers to enjoy the rhythms of the various seasons of the liturgical calendar so that they might align their lives with the broad redemption story of Scripture and make commitments that will promote faith’s flourishing, one day at a time all the way through to eternity, when faith will become sight and time will be a constraint no more.
Dortch retired as senior minister of Mountain Brook Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in Nov. 2021, having served churches in Kentucky and Florida previously. A native of York, Alabama, he is married to Judy, and they have two children and three grandchildren. Learn more about Dortch on his author page.
