During this holy season of penitence and preparation, we invite you to make daily use of our Lenten devotional, a booklet of meditations, prayers, poems, and images, to guide you into a deeper experience of God’s love, nearness, and restoration. As we strive to become the Beloved Community, a community motivated by love to work for justice and peace, we invite you to use this tool to enhance and deepen your relationship with Jesus. Just as Christ walked through the wilderness for forty days, we are called to walk the road of ever-deepening faith. Not merely to observe Christianity as interested bystanders, but to put one foot in front of the other, and seek the God who seeks us. Our prayer is that this devotional will help you as you observe “a holy fast” this season.
