about d365

The d365 daily devotional site is produced by Passport, Inc., a national student ministry organization and 501(c)(3) nonprofit, focused on creating meaningful experiences and resources for students. From youth and children’s camps, to international awareness and youth leader resources, Passport, Inc. gives students a chance to see and experience their world in new ways. Passport launched its first devotional site in 2001 in response to the attacks of September 11th. The primary goal since the start has been to provide inspirational and relevant reflections on scripture for young people.

The devotional experience, written especially for youth and young adults, seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. We are happy to say that d365 is read by over 2,000 people each day, throughout 74 different countries! We hope this experience will create a quiet space in your life for meditation and prayer.

the devotional experience

Our devotions are written by ministers, professors, students, teachers, missionaries, denominational leaders, and others who work with and care for students. Typically, an author writes on a single theme for one week. In these devotions, you will read honest struggles and questions, all in the context of real faith. As you read the thoughts of the writers, think about your own response to the scripture for the day. Let the writer’s words serve as background for your own conversation with God.

Instrumental music is available for your devotional experience. You can start the music by selecting the music notes at the bottom left of the screen and adjust the volume as needed.

Although devotions are available every day of the year, d365 highlights three special seasons:

This series follows the common liturgical season of Advent, running from the end of November to the beginning of January.

This series provides inspiration during the Lenten season, beginning on Ash Wednesday and running through the Sunday following Easter.

From August to September, we provide a series of encouragement and wisdom from scripture for a significant time of transition in students’ lives.

 

 

the five steps

Each day of the week, we begin our devotions with a powerful statement intended to help you pause and prepare to listen to what God is saying. The “Pause” statement will remain the same throughout the week.

You will find selected lectionary scripture verse(s) for each day. Unless otherwise noted, scriptures are from the Common English Bible.

d365Logo_Circle_Think

The devotional is designed to help you think and interact with the scripture. Let the writer’s words guide your reflection on the scripture.

d365Logo_Circle_Pray

The prayer is a starting point for you to begin your own personal conversations with God.

d365Logo_Circle_Go

We conclude our devotions with a blessing intended to send you out, remembering what you have learned, guided by the Spirit. The “Go” statement will also remain the same throughout the week.
