LINKS FOR LENT

Episcopal Relief & Development offers a 2017 Lenten Meditations guide. Available in English and Spanish, this year's devotional focuses on creating economic opportunities and strengthening communities, with a particular focus on empowering women.

d365 Daily Devotional is written especially for students and seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. Although devotions are available every day of the year, they offer a special series for Lent. For iPhone and iPad users, there's a handy d365 app.

Lent Madness is back again! The format is straightforward: 32 saints are placed into a tournament-like single elimination bracket. The first round consists of basic biographical information about each of the 32 saints. Things get a bit more interesting in the subsequent rounds as they offer quotes and quirks, explore legends, and even move into the area of saintly kitsch.

 Forward Movement offers very inexpensive devotionals for Lent, including "Meeting Jesus on the Margins" which includes contributions from our Annual Council keynote speaker, the Rev. Canon Mike Kinman.

 Church Publishing has a nice selection of Lenten reading materials for adults, children and families.

Center for Action and Contemplation: The website for Fr. Richard Rohr and his organization that promotes contemplative prayer as a way to take action on the gospel. Daily meditations are available.

Society of St. John the Evangelist: Our Lenten series, “Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John,” begins on Sunday, February 11. A beautiful journal has been produced to accompany the six-week program of daily videos from the brothers. The journal can be purchased individually or in packs of ten on Amazon, or you can pick one up at the Monastery. You can also download printable versions from the website (including a large-print edition). We hope you will join us for this transformative offering.
