Resources for Lent

2021 Lenten Resources

Lenten Meditations from Episcopal Relief & Development

ERD’s annual booklet of daily Lenten meditations focuses this year on lament—an appropriate theme both for Lent and for our current context. The meditations include reflections by our own Bishop Phoebe Roaf. This year’s booklet is offered online, rather than in print. You may access the file at the link below, or sign up to receive the meditations as a daily email.

Forward Day by Day

The current issue of the daily devotional from Forward Movement is available in the parish office and in the narthex pamphlet rack. Let the office know if you would like us to drop a copy in the mail for you!

Finding Spiritual Practices

In the video link below, our Director of Adult Formation, Tom Carpenter, helps us explore spiritual practices for a holy Lent and a healthy spirit. This presentation is part of our on-going weekly adult formation series, based on the book Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs and Practices, by the Revs. Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe.
