The four congregations that have offered studies of Luke’s parables and the first 12 chapters of Genesis are jointly creating daily devotions for the 40-day season of Lent in 2017. You are invited to write one of the devotions!

To sign up for a date with an assigned biblical text, click here. It’s first-come, first-served, so sign up soon!

A few guidelines for what you write:

  • Reflect on the biblical text assigned to your date.
  • Express yourself in writing as you wish – story, reflection, poem, etc.
  • Try to keep your reflection between 300 and 400 words.
  • Write in Times New Roman font, size 12.

The congregations of St. John’s Lutheran, St. Francis Episcopal, Archangel Greek Orthodox, and First Presbyterian hope this will be a meaningful way for all of us to engage in the 2017 season of Lent.
