Along the Journey–Finding the Holy in Lent

February 20, 2015

Church News, Community Ministry

The Season of Lent is the 40 day journey that proceeds Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection.  During Lent we are encouraged to think about our relationship with God and our neighbor.  Our relationships are often a complicated mix of emotions and experiences.  We sometimes fail miserably at them and inflict pain on others.  There are victorious moments of love and celebration where all seems right in the world.  Lent gives us the opportunity to think about lives, repent of our sins and celebrate our victories.  The fact of the matter is that our lives mirror the life of Christ and his disciples.  Just as we struggle with being faithful to God an our neighbors, they too struggled in their own faith journey.  May we be strengthened by their witness to us.

You will find below a number of resources to help you along your Lenten journey.

The Society of Saint John the Evangelist (An invitation to a daily Lenten devotional series)

The United Church of Christ’s Still Speaking Devotional (A daily devotional sent to your inbox by UCC pastors)

There are Lent Calendars and devotional books for adults and children in the Edgewood Avenue entrance at the church.  Please feel free to pick one up the next time you visit St. Paul’s!
