Lenten Devotional 2018: This Happened.

One of the gifts of the forty days of Lent is the creation of a Christ UMC Lenten Devotional. Every day church members are able to take in the words and reflections of other church members. The writings revolve around a theme.

 This year the theme is: This Happened.

What are the core stories that your family tells or that you tell?  What do those stories speak about who you are and what matters to you?  When have you encountered surprising grace or unlikely visits from the Holy?  

We ask that you write up those stories and submit them to Gwen Ravenhorst at You can submit a favorite poem if that seems best.  The    stories will be sent out daily to our email list.  We will print up a limited number of paper copies for those who don’t use email.

Deadline for submission is January 31st.

 Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.  This year Ash Wednesday falls on Valentines’ Day, February 14th. Please share your stories.  We all grow in grace when we hear each other!
