Lent 2017

    Lent 2017

    Our theme for Lent this year is Breathe.  This season, take a moment to breathe as you read our 2017 Lenten Devotional. Written by both clergy and laity, these devotionals have been carefully crafted to coordinate with the weekly sermon series, reminding us to breathe in the midst of difficulty, uncertainty, and disappointment.

    As you read the devotional, you will be reminded to breathe and remain focused on God.  As a further reminder, this devotional doubles as a meditative coloring book.  Just as Lent begins stark and bare, with Jesus fasting in the wilderness, our devotional begins in black and white, stark and bare.  Among the writings are mandalas, intricately patterned circles that represent completeness.  As you begin coloring each mandala, more and more life will come to those pages, representing a devotional with growing color and hope that leads us to the hope and new life of Jesus’ Resurrection.

    Copies of the 2017 Lenten devotional will be available throughout the church on and after Ash Wednesday, March 1.
